Workshop | Trace_Line_Binding. On the Sociality of Polyphonic Gestures

Nov 17, 2023 | 09:30 AM - 07:00 PM

Event in English spoken language with German and French | free admission | no registration required | barrier-free access

The interdisciplinary workshop, organized and carried out by project A04, explores the extent to which models of polyphony can underlie the dynamics, development, storage, and invention of social practices, whereby the notion of linear interruption may serve as an orientation. The convergence of the equally diverse and highly individual argumentations of Roland Barthes, Frederic Rzewki, Sigrid Weigel, Edward Said and Homi K. Bhabha are also invariably driven and filtered by intensive engagement with art, to an incommensurable relationship of linearities and interrupting new beginnings is also significant beyond discourse analysis and reflects superordinate poetics of intervention on a micro level.

The workshop is primarily intended as a format for interdisciplinary exchange. Short impulse lectures (10-15 minutes) alternating with artistic presentations and lecture performances will precede moderated discussion rounds in the plenum.
