Dizziness–A Resource? Two hypotheses are hidden in the title of this artistic research. First, in this context, the term dizziness is understood in a broader sense. Second, the artistic research claims that states of dizziness should be considered a resource.
1564 the famous Italian anatomist and surgeon Julius Caesar Aranzi discovered a small structure when dissecting a human brain. He named it hippocampus, because its form reminded him of that of a sea horse.
"Everything is in relation to everything" - Glimpses on a meeting
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 end of the extent of our knowledge defines the borders of our world as we know it. Since the concept of the world as a plate, right up to the discovery of the existence of dark matter, this has not changed.
Having grown up in Lesotho (his mother is German, his father South African), Teboho Edkins' films are shaped by a search for borders: between belonging and intrusion, between documenting and fictional storytelling, between film and video art.
