Slavoj Žižek and Expertism in Central Asia

Recently I went to Freie University to visit a lecture by Slavoy Zizek. His performance was all one could possibly hope for. And his ideas were very stimulating. His reading of Hegel’s philosophy as the very foundation of the modern idea of contingency (or the necessity for it) came quite unexpected. I never really read Hegel and always felt repelled by the idea of some guiding Weltgeist, something I considered the very end to the idea of contingency. I know, it sounds ignorant but, well, at least I made it to Zizek’s lecture. And Zizek continued his presentation with another killing of god (very funny: god – the bad programmer). With god gone there seems no hope left for a final solution to the problem of contingency. All the more irritating are attempts by capitalism (and before that communism) to fill the gap and present the world as a reality with no choice left but economic rationalization. However, instead of falling into despair because of such gloomy double outcome (no solution to contingency and the stupidity of capitalism), Zizek took the chance to ask for another revolution and called on us to overcome current limits to pure freedom or just ‚thinking‘, as he phrased it. Since we were in the sphere of academia, he finished by claiming that the current Bologna process is a dictatorship, repressively simulating the representation of the capitalist need for technical solutions only. Bologna stands for a world considered to be a cumulation of problems that call for experts to deal with them. In Zizek’s words Bologna turns out to be one face of the new god and another end to the idea of contingency and the contingent making of our world. This comparison awakened the rebel in many of us; well, and it reminded me very much of the world of development aid in Central Asia and the question for development in general and the group of people responsible for its management: the community of experts.

Депутаттык Азилдер (page 12/13)

The text says:

To the Executive Head of the Council of Ministries:
You boasted like a young girl
Who wants to find a husband
Apsamat, Apas and Jumgalbek,
Are you really smart at all?
Aren’t you four that made our life
As it is now!

To the Former Executive head of High Council Kulmatov Renat:
He is sitting like a little boy who is guilty of something
He is not looking around and turning back
Calmly sitting, just like a sweet little boy
He even doesn’t dare to say something
But he is not calm inside
Because he knows what the life became like (if he turns around)
