Raqs Media Collective: »Where Do You Wander Alone?«

Video lecture: from Wednesday, December 2, 2020, 7 pm (CET)
Online conversation: Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 4 pm (CET), hosted by Olivia Berkowicz and Viktorija Šiaulytė

In »Where Do You Wander Alone?« Raqs Media Collective reads the poetry of robots and rebel princesses, thinks from the vantage point of deep time and deep space, and considers transformations in thinking, feeling, living and acting.

While doing this, Raqs recognize the elusive primacy of insubstantial »nothing« as a binding principle between objects and awareness. Their insistence on this primacy of nothingness is not an admission of ontological failure or epistemic collapse; rather it is a recognition of the fact that what binds one thing to another cannot be easily named, marked, or numbered. This radical uncertainty can be an occasion, not for the paralysis of awareness, but for transformative joy. Then, the question »Where Do You Wander Alone?« can be seen for what it is – a signpost marking a moment of expanding sentience in an unfolding cosmic adventure
