Beschreibung

In a few weeks‘ time, the coronavirus has undone more than what many of us have tried to willingly change in the past decades. The complete shutdown of a machinery which was seen as unstoppable offers an incredible chance for critical questioning, but also for pragmatically and collectively inventing and building worlds yet to come. The Covid-19 virus not only surprised us by its rapidity and its intensity but also became a worldwide phenomenon, bringing us into an intimidatingly durational sense of global synchronicity. An acceleration of pre-existing movements attempting to survive is already perceptible, for better or for worse. 

While the world seems to even more strongly shift towards digital societies of control, this adaptation puts many of us in front of a choice to make between responses of radicalism and extremism. Extremism is characterised by the fixity of forms of identities, especially the national identity which briefly looked like a renewed source of security in recent weeks. But radicalism includes a preacceleration and a prefiguration of the what else, the what is yet to be tirelessly invented again and again. New shapes of honest, generous and empathetic security have to be offered to those who fear change, if we take the risk of radicalism. We advocate radicalism as the analogue, the necessary passage to the what else, regardless of its form as the digital or something else to explore. We are hungry for ways of living that takes into account all of us in a regenerative setting. 

The nondigital Covid-19 reminds us of the tremendous forces of the analogue as passage towards radical change. We see practices navigating with the analogue as a never-ending source of inspiration for inventing artistic, scientific and social shapes. 

Due to Covid-19, Digital Anthropologies #8 is a closed, self-funded event that takes place in a private location near Paris, France, 24-30 August 2020. We invite you to submit materials of all kinds that will be collectively developed before, during and after the event.

You will propose a way of creating, thinking and feeling the constellation of this one week event. Collaboratively, we will share our techniques to activate each work for the unique caring gesture to emerge. For this radical gesture of togetherness to flourish, we need to pre-accelerate the event together during summer. We listen carefully to each selected proposal. Each proposal is folded in the arms of one member of the selection committee for the work to be activated in the relational field of the event. Collectively, we explore the techniques yet to be invented to enter the event. 

Conditions of participation

  • Submission of a work, research, or proposition that dreams of a generous future, completed or in progress, from any scientific or artistic discipline, by 30 June 2020.

If the project is selected

  • Required availability to pre-accelerate the event with your work in collaboration with a member of the selection committee until the event.
  • Required physical attendance on 24-30 August 2020, as long as the current situation makes it possible.
