The semester meeting fall 2012 will take place in Stockholm and is organized by Petra Bauer, Simon Goldin, Janna Holmstedt, Mette Ingvartsen & Elke Marhöfer. The core of the meeting consists of two parallel workshops, signed up for in advance.
One workshop is a “double bill” and will be hosted by literary researcher Christina Kullberg together with choreographers Stina Nyberg, Uri Turkenich and Halla Ólafsdóttir . Two different strands of thinking will be introduced, which both focuses on how to speak through one’s practice, each taking the work of Caribbean poet and philosopher Edouard Glissant as point of departure. Read more about the workshop and required preparations here.
The other workshop, led by artist Natascha Sadr Haghighian, will discuss approaches to knowledge and sovereignity that are tied to experience, to fieldwork beyond the factual and are based on a substantial doubt in the established knowledge categories and the institutions that produce and regulate knowledge and above all a substantial doubt in the construction of the real. Read Natascha’s introduction and required preparations here. The semester meeting will start with joint events introducing the workshops, and end with a joint gathering.
