Please register by sending an email to disorder@nonknowledge.org

As part of the artistic research project Non-knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image the online symposium THE DANCE OF DISORDER invites you to live online screenings, talks and discussions that explore the Moving image's and the body’s potential to overturn our habitual course and change the order of things. During these two days bodies, images and sounds speak through unstable and unforeseen movements and encounters to explore ways in which we communicate beyond instrumental language, subjectivity and reason, and 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 Annika Larsson and founded by the Swedish Research Council and done in collaboration with The Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm and the HFBK-Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg.

HFBK Graduate Survey

Studying art - and what comes next? The clichéd images stand their ground: Those who have studied art either become taxi drivers, work in a bar or marry rich. But only very few people could really live from art – especially in times of global crises. The HFBK Hamburg wanted to know more about this and commissioned the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg to conduct a broad-based survey of its graduates from the last 15 years.

How political is Social Design?

Social Design, as its own claim is often formulated, wants to address social grievances and ideally change them. Therefore, it sees itself as critical of society – and at the same time optimizes the existing. So what is the political dimension of Social Design – is it a motor for change or does it contribute to stabilizing and normalizing existing injustices?
