- 1/2/8 — The System Is Uncertain
TUE 09. —
Research festival with Residencies, Talks, Workshops and public Moments
In spring 2017 PACT launched 1/2/8, a new multi-chaptered research and development format with a special focus on connections between knowledge and actions. The format proposes extended amounts of time and space for practices of cooperation between people, objects, space, technology and experimentation.
The first chapter centres around the possibilities of deviation: How can we implement changes in or outside of static or powerful prevailing systems of thought and organization? How can we foresee, develop and connect alternative forms of action? What kind of resources, possibilities, opportunities and spaces of action do we have to hand and need?
To take an in-depth look at these questions, we are inviting artists, scientists, journalists and experts from other varied fields of knowledge, to work in our studios and enter into dialogue and experiments with one another over the course of several weeks in May 2017. Supported by temporary research fellowships, those taking part will actively contribute to the shape and substance of PACT’s key areas of activity as a research platform, artists’ centre and performance venue.
1/2/8 ›the system is uncertain‹ mixes private sessions, group discussions, project presentations and public events in an informal research festival exploring ideas and practice.
