“Formations”: contribution to the Wisdom Techniques Evening

Our current fellow Alex Martinis Roe and Melanie Sehgal present “Formations” with Roman Brinzanik, Deborah Haaksman, Rebekka Ladewig, Julian Schubert and Hendrik Weber during the demonstrations and discussion evening titled “Wisdom Techniques” at Haus der Kulturen der Welt on 16th April 2016.

This evening introduces a constructive approach to the “technologies of the self” and “anthropotechnics” of knowledge and their dissemination. It will investigate knowledge practices, both ancient and new, through inventive and open-ended exercises: as bodily experiences and practices of imagination concerned not only with established facts, but with habits of perception, feeling, and action.

“FORMATIONS: Propositions, Stories and Sketches for Transdisciplinary Encounter” serves as a window into the research methods of the transversal working group "FORMATIONS", where the members present a series of formats for interdisciplinary encounter and collaboration, which were devised over the course of a year-long process of working together. These formats were developed using the specific methodologies and practices of the various members and the way in which they encountered one another in the "FORMATIONS" experiment.
