On the Radical Equivalence of Experience
24 until 26 June 2022
At the heart of this theme is the place from which we express ourselves. Where does our I come from? And our We? How can spaces and times be connected and kept flexible even as they interact? After all, places and contexts are the spatial and mental settings that render experience possible or impossible. Choreopolitics explores what invisibly guides our bodies and our emotions. Complex performative systems impact us. Spatial and social situations, institutions, urban planning and architecture, but also the family, school, stage, work, and gender norms all evoke demands on our conduct, our actions, our sensibility. Since in everyday life such appeals tend to masquerade as habits, routine, or matters of course, we often become aware of them only after moving to a different context. Choreopolitics reads places as spatial and mental settings that enable the new.
