Meaning or movement? Objects or rhythm?

Friday, January 19, 2018; 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

What ways of being become viable when art is able to interrupt our satisfaction with the intellectual, affective, relational and performative economies we are invested in? What are the conditions that make this interruption possible? In this session, we explore the premise that being cannot be reduced to rational knowing and invite the audience into a fish-bowl conversation related to the implications of mobilizing art primarily through movement, rhythm and process rather than meaning, fixed stories, or finished objects.

Vanessa de Oliveira Andreotti introduces the conversation
