C7 Zapparova & al: We (don’t) need a title (2/2)

Alia Zapparova, Erica Böhr, Frauke Ebert, Renata Gaspar, Stephanie Hanna Berlin Public trace: blog post and audio-visual documentation Where are you, I wonder? Distanced access to one another’s presence, facilitated by ones and zeros that can dematerialize and rematerialize through the air, particles that carry my thoughts to your house. We hope to meet again. What will happen then? We are planning to unplan and not-planning to plan: a collaboration a space of sharing a playground of uncertainty a meeting place of doubts A group of people will meet in Berlin. We will have a meeting point, possibly at a location that some participants have access to, from where we can go off in different directions and make excursions out into the city. We will start in the middle, with constellations of not-knowing, and see if knot-knowing emerges. Instead of creating pressure to be productive, we will explore what it means to work under conditions of uncertainty. These are some strategies that we will explore: collective cartographies multiplicities of languages, of layers, of selves non-linear thinking, non-linear naming, non-linear trajectories simultaneities, pluralities shared reflection time, different timescapes in place making of alternative landscapes for encountering one another spontaneous combustions by creating and holding space together We will invite other Berlin-based participants to join us. Part of our process will be inventing ways to document the happenings.
