About this event

A presentation through practices of two books written through practices, as a framework to reflect collectively on the role of publishing in the context of artistic research. Although very different in form, the writing processes articulate practice and thought as two naturally and necessarily interwoven things.

 

Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line, Nikolaus Gansterer, Emma Cocker, Mariella Greilb (eds.), DeGruyter, Berlin, 2017

Thinking Conditioning through Practice, Alex Arteaga and Heike Langsdorf (eds.), APE, Ghent, 2018

The two publications serve as platform for three performances in different media followed by an open discussion with the audience:

- Julien Bruneau: excerpt of the performance Some crosscuts of some of our improbable bodies, with Anouk Llaurens and Sonia Si Ahmed
- Alex Arteaga & Nikolaus Gansterer: acousmatic translecture
- Miriam Rohde, Laetitia Gendre & Heike Langsdorf: From where we are (becoming a spatial participant)
- Kristof Van Baarle: a series of postcards spelling questions and thoughts on the two books to stimulate a conversation between contributors and audience

Nikolaus Gansterer is currently in residency at WIELS.
