"Articulating Trans-Territorality. Geographical And Disciplinary Dispacements." A Workshop With Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio
Our body is 65% water and, as Bauman said, fluids travel easily. The workshop will address the contemporary way of working, acting and living trans-territorially. What are the relevant points of working internationally and collaboratively? How can we articulate our professional skills and knowledge in an ever-changing environment? Is it our practice able to be performed out of our comfort zone? The workshop will question our capability of developing research and building relationships in the current impermanent, changeable, irregular, unpredictable and very variable way of living. Adapting to different places and contexts, creating fluid professional and affective maps and constellations, being aware of the self in relation to the other, engaging in conversations, walking and strolling together will be some of the practices and metaphors addressed in the workshop.
