Break camp, break in, break the mould.
Starting with the attempt to call the phenomenon of dizziness by its proper name, this book brings together diverse voices considering the potential of this in-between state from multiple perspectives and in view of different disciplines.
Lecture by Maya Shmailov at ‘Navigating the Unknown – Fears and Pleasures of Dizziness‘.
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.
Extending to 'Utrata równowagi' at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond curated with Michał Matuszewski six programmes of Austrian and international films.
Can dizziness be a resource? What remains after unsettledness and disorientation? And how can we see communities find their balance in uncertain situations? Particularly now, in times of ubiquitous invocations of global crisis, these questions of collective balancing and balancing collectives are more relevant than ever.
