[the EPONYM] What can you Bodily think?


Neue Nationalgalerie, Festival of Future Nows.
Invited Collaborators: Wietske Maas, Patricia Reed, Alex Martinis Roe, Thilo Wiertz

We will use breathing techniques, trigger olfaction, and combine bodily practice with theoretical reflections to pose the question: How does our embodiment determine our perception of the world? Participants in this workshop will explore a practical philosophy of natureculture by looking at an "ecology without nature"(Timothy Morton). Borrowing from New Materialism, the disentanglement from the Cartesian dualism of body and mind, we will explore theoretical reflection via bodily practice. We will work with texts from thinkers such as Karen Barad, Rosi Braidotti, and Claire Colebrook. We will shift attention between subjectivity and the abyssal quality of the "Hyperobject", that in Timothy Morton's terms characterise vast entities such as global warming. Participants will be part of an attempt to query science and embody fiction.
