extreme theory congress
For almost a year I had the privilege to work with a board of the most inspiring people on a concept for an extreme theory congress.
Our idea was not to find answers or to assign the discourses to appropriate faculties, but to enable the experience that in different and disparate fields questions of contemporary subjectivity are negotiated in ways that might produce recognition of neighbourhood. This sort of dispute about acute questions of our times formulated our idea of a socio-political discourse. We wanted to initiate a discourse, which brings together arts, theory, and politics and gives enough room to question scientists and artists about their views on future social structures.
Board members were: William Bennett, Carmen Brucic, Manu Burghart, Felix Ensslin, Gesche Joost, Nicolas Langlitz and me.
