Festival & Symposium: Non-Knowledge, Laughter and The Moving Image
- HFBK Hamburg, ICAT – Institute for Contemporary Art & Transfer, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof
“Non-Knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image” is a three-year artistic research project led by Prof Annika Larsson and realized in collaboration with HFBK Hamburg and the Royal Institute of Art Stockholm.
As the final part of this artistic research project the festival & symposium invite you to screenings, performances, talks and discussions that explore the potential of the moving image and the (human and non-human) body to overturn our habitual course and change the dominant order of things. During two days in Stockholm (15—16 Nov) and four days in Hamburg (24—27 Nov) we will explore ways in which we, organisms, bodies, technologies and environments communicate beyond instrumental language, subjectivity and reason, to experience what moving images and bodies can do and how they can teach us about the limits of our thinking. The project is led by Prof Annika Larsson and founded by the Swedish Research Council and done in collaboration with The Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm and the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg.
