8 + 9 June 2018 "SALON FÜR ÄSTHETISCHE EXPERIMENTE - SPECIAL: Performance Lecture + Workshop" “How can we attend to the process of artistic sense-making from within or inside, that affective realm of energies, emergences and intensities operat­ing before, between, and below the more readable ges­tures of artistic practice? How can we develop systems of notation and performativity for sharing this often hidden or undisclosed aspect of the creative process, for communicating the experience with others?” “Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line” is an artistic research project involving key researchers writer-artist Emma Cocker, artist-performer Nikolaus Gansterer and dancer-choreographer Mariella Greil, working with others including artist-researcher Alex Arteaga. In this performance lecture at Salon für Ästhetische Experimente, the researchers draw on their publication “Choreo-graphic Figures” as a ‘score’, performing their findings and reflections as live event. Here Alexander Damianisch, Head of Research at The University of Applied Arts Vienna, will act as a respondent in the follow on conversation. An interdisciplinary workshop will give deeper insight into “Choreo-graphic Figures”, introducing practices of attention, conversation and notation for making tangible the barely perceptible micro-movements at the cusp of awareness within artistic process. Performance Lecture: 8 June 2018, 6-9pm, Universität der Künste, Room 101 (Alte Bibliothek), Hardenbergstraße 33, 10623 Berlin. The Salon für Ästhetische Experimente is a cooperation with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and co-funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
