Please join us for the official launch of Dizziness – A Resource. This book launch will feature Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond, editors and authors of the book, who will introduce the book and their eponymous artistic research project, and Sergio Edelsztein, former director of CCA Tel Aviv and collaborator of the artistic research Dizziness – A Resource. In 2016 he co-hosted a three-day event at the CCA, Navigating the Unknown – Fears and Pleasures of Dizziness, where Maya M. Shmailov participated with a lecture. Maya then contributed an essay to the reader connecting her expertise on border-crossing personalities with the potentially dizzying experience of works of art, from which she will read an excerpt. Then, the discussion will be open to the public.

Dizziness – A Resource is a cross-disciplinary reader presenting the findings of the eponymous long-term artistic research project initiated by artists Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond and co-edited with their collaborator, philosopher Karoline Feyertag. Indeed, dizziness is more than feeling dizzy. Contributions by artists, researchers from experimental sciences as well as cultural studies, and philosophers trace dizziness not only as a phenomenon of physiological, emotional, and cognitive processes but highlight the transversal nature of the phenomenon. The book puts dizziness as today’s conditio humana to the test, scrutinizing individual as well as collective states of unbalance, confusion, and disorientation. Yet, the programmatic claim of the editors is that these states of dizziness can be regarded as a resource – at least with regard to artistic research, philosophy, and current socio-political landscapes. With contributions by Ruth Anderwald, Mathias Benedek, Oliver A. I. Botar, Katrin Bucher Trantow, Davide Deriu, Karoline Feyertag, Leonhard Grond, Sarah Kolb, François Jullien, Rebekka Ladewig, Jarosław Lubiak, Alice Pechriggl, Oliver Ressler, Maya M. Shmailov, Maria Spindler, Marcus Steinweg.
