“THINKING THROUGH PRACTICES”
A presentation through practices of two books written through practices, as a framework to reflect collectively on the role
of publishing in the context of artistic research. Although very different in form, the writing processes articulate practice
and thought as two naturally and necessarily interwoven things. We invite to a moment where some of the practices through
which these books are existing now will be performed and made present as ways of thinking.
The two publications "Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line", Nikolaus Gansterer, Emma Cocker, Mariella Greil (eds.),
DeGruyter, Berlin, 2017 and "Thinking Conditioning through Practice", Alex Arteaga and Heike Langsdorf (eds.) APE, Ghent,
2018 serve as platform for three performances in different media followed by a open discussion with the audience: Alex Arteaga
& Nikolaus Gansterer: acousmatic translecture; Julien Bruneau: excerpt of the performance some crosscuts of some of our improbable
bodies, with Anouk Llaurens and Sonia Si Ahmed; Miriam Rohde, Laetitia Gendre & Heike Langsdorf: From where we are (becoming
a spatial participant); Kristof Van Baarle sends a series of postcards spelling a couple of questions and thoughts on the
two books stimulating a conversation between contributors and audience. The event takes place at WIELS, Contemporary Art Centre,
Brussels, Belgium. Free admission.
