The last two labs of the day by EXP.edition and the Ecosystems of Knowledge-Working Group will invite you to a synergetic space of experience of artistic research: Outside we will explore techniques of sensory perception for poetizing the body and its context. Afterwards we will come together for an open discussion to talk about concepts of the non- und posthuman in our project space at Römerstraße and in cyberspace.
»Re-coding Anticipation. A Micro-EXP.edition«
Lab III with the EXP.edition (Demian Bern, Elena Morena Weber and guests)
In a two-hour course, the laboratory simulates situations that are developed and used in the artistic research format of EXP.editions. Together with Elena Morena Weber, Demian Bern and guests, the participants will use a terrain in the south of Stuttgart for micro-field research. The combination of individual expertise and collective intelligence will be tested here, as well as strategies for poetizing the surrounding space, the use of the body as a space probe. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing and shoes – we will be moving around outdoors – and bring a cell phone.
»Encounters with the Non- and Posthuman«
Lab IV with the Ecosystems of Knowledge-Working Group (Aouefa Amoussouvi, Hemal Naik and guests)
In the form of an open dialog the group invites you to discuss different forms of the non- and posthuman and your experiences with it. What does it mean to be human? Which knowledge can the environment and other living and non-living creatures teach us? We will also examine how the development of technology expands the capacities of mankind both positively and negatively and how it questions the definition of nature.
You can take part online as well at the Römerstraße project space. To attend online, we will send a link after you have registered.
