At Issue: höjden, June 2019

During a week in June I had the opportunity to host the AT ISSUE* morning classes at höjden. I proposed an issue for the physical study circle that stems from my current research around anatomical language and the naming of bodies (working project title: Hollow the bones), and which worked with poeticizing and problematizing some of our somatic-linguistic entanglements.

Proposing some things from the research to study collectively in this format felt a useful way to move forward with the work, which is still very much in process and something that I am still getting to know.

Here are some of the traces and articulations from the week:



*AT ISSUE is a structure for morning classes organised by INSISTER SPACE that facilitates collective studies of artistic proposals. During each class members from the organisation INSISTER SPACE will host sessions during which a proposal (such as a question, task, theme or material) is put forth and then studied collectively. During these classes we will respond to the issue at hand, articulate and share experiences, leave traces and, in turn, see how the different proposals affect and contaminate each other throughout the week.
