Workshop: Embodied Practices between Phenomenology and Performance
> Friday and Saturday, December 6th and 7th, 2019
> Venue: Kulturcampus Domäne Marienburg, Stiftung Universität Hildesheim

This workshop aims to explore the embodied character of practices from a phenomenological perspective, so as to bring this phenomenological account into dialogue both with “Performative Esthetics” (Erika Fischer-Lichte) and with performances as embodied esthetic practices. This topic is addressed from both a theoretical and practical point of view: the workshop includes the artistic installation »CONSPIRACY ARCHIVES«, as well as a session of somatic exercises based on Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir’s choreographic method.

DFG-Graduiertenkolleg «Ästhetische Praxis»

This installation is a Mixed Reality Choreographic Archive. The large images installed in this space act as triggers to launch video in an augmented reality app running on mobile devices (phones, iPads etc.) In this artistic research project, the somatic qualities of the performance Conspiracy Ceremony-HYPERSONIC STATES (2017) by Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir are channeled and shared. This archive uses digital devices to transport something of human value and experience beyond the domain of the commercial world and consumer markets. It is an active political gesture.

Conspiracy Archives is part of the Somatic Archiving strand of the Living Archives Research Project (2012-2018) at Malmö University, Sweden, initiated by professor Susan Kozel (Philosophy/ Archival Concept) in collaboration with Jeannette Ginslov (Digital Media & AR Creation and Concept) Keith Lim (AR/MR Creation and media development) and choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir.
