LECTURE IN ENGLISH
During their lecture, the working group FORMATIONS shine a light on the potentialities and the vulnerabilities of working structures and research methods. They will provide an insight into their methodological toolbox, which the influence of individual members’ specific practices helped develop and maintain. It serves as an approach to carry out research on and within the overlapping zones of what Félix Guattari terms the ‘three ecologies’ – mental, social and environmental.
FORMATIONS is a transversal working group led by Alex Martinis Roe and Melanie Sehgal, consisting of practitioners from varying disciplines including the arts, philosophy, human geography, computational biology, yoga, urban design, cultural and literary studies, and political activism. The experimental set-up of the group aims at practical responses to the insufficiency of modern categories of thought and their disciplinary and institutional sedimentations.
