In this era where there is no place on the planet that is not environmentally effected by our hand, it is debatable to articulate a world outside of us. In turn, in a time where technology networks, reroutes, and splices our self-projections while systematically atomizing our immaterial labor, we are challenged in the way we map our self-legitimacy. All of this biological and technical fusion, yet we find ourselves in a time of increased social and economic fracturing. Thus arises the necessity to explore ways of obtaining and defining identity.
Fall Semester has structured its second iteration around four thematic lines: Written by the body: on body, gesture, marks and space; Let’s get deep: The space of the systemic: on power bases as medium; Imaging me and you: on image and performativity; and Intimacy with the cosmos: on ecologies of the non-body.
So in the now twenty-first century: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?
A set of 19 booklets with written essays by all contributors and graciously designed and illustrated by Andreas Höpfer are available for sale in print on demand.
