My definition of a novel is therefore a practical one: I believe in the usability (Nutzbarkeit, Brauchbarkeit) of novels, be it as inspirational sources, as sources for new ideas, new perspectives, or even as simple instructions. To this end though, dialogue is essential.
Lecture by Maya Shmailov at ‘Navigating the Unknown – Fears and Pleasures of Dizziness‘.
I see Taumeln - or “dizziness” - as having five dimensions: firstly there is the deliberately cultivated technique of Taumeln, or meandering, that the Socratic school practiced at the agora in Athens. Walking in a straight line leads to rigid thinking and getting stuck in tracks or a rut of some kind.
'Utrata równowagi' at Ujazdowski Castle, Centre for Contemporary Art is the follow-up exhibition of 'Dizziness. Navigating the Unknown' at Kunsthaus Graz and allows visitors to immerse themselves in the experience and reflections on dizziness.
The one-day symposium titled ‘Agents of Confusion!’ brings together artistic and cross-disciplinary research on dizziness, with speakers from the fields of philosophy, visual arts, creativity research and cultural studies in the form of screenings, artists’ talks, lectures and discussions.
