How did we succeed to make dizziness a sort of commonplace? After several cross-disciplinary gatherings in the course of the research project ‘Dizziness–A Resource’, it became clear that the introduction of the concept of dizziness into divergent research fields created a compossible space, formed by our common interest in the experience of and reflection on dizziness.
Only since contemporary philosophy could compossibility also mean that opposites, several mutually contradictory worlds or heterogeneous truths, are possible within the same universe and without necessarily entailing separation, distinction or any dichotomy between them.
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.
The symposium 'Between Images' explores contemporary artistic perspectives on the period after World War II. The invited artists of the symposium will use various media to approach the question of how it was possible to live together after the disillusionment of the lost war.
The process of slipping into dizzying freefall, of sliding into uncertainty, becoming stuck, losing one’s way, giving up are as much actions as occurrences, both active and passive. Dizziness is a midway state at the point where everything and nothing seems possible, where certainty and uncertainty are in superposition, marked by an increasing loss of control.
