Distant and Dispersed
The world is still in crisis and presence continues to be a question and a problem.
Presence has become immaterial, intangible, ephemeral, fugitive, ungraspable. Presence has become overbearing, unbearable, too near, intolerable, threatening. Longing for old presences; looking for ways to recreate, reformulate and reinvent new forms; returning to presence; leaving presence; searching, unmaking and remaking; undoing, being undone and reassembling. We’re present, we exchange presences, we find ways to speak, without forgetting silences and absences. Where, when and how do we find and lose presence? In what does it consist? What are its elements? How is it formed? How is it communicated and experienced?
We will meet online to have a series of conversations around presence and to experiment with presences.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with a link and a password to join the Zoom meeting.
You only need to register once to join all four events.
