With psychoanalysis, we should listen to dizziness: to find rhythms and tempos of the unconscious. Other senses in the nonsense. Triggering — dizziness allows talking; and a change in perspective, if heard. Colliding, conflicting trajectories in intense multiplicity could lead to the shape-shifting of lives, and institutions. What can be heard in Yukio Mishima’s and Gustav von Aschenbach’s dizziness?
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 FORUM 20:17 wants to bring up the social and cultural change of the global societies and the associated need for orientation of young people in the new form of a future laboratory as well as the associated need for shaping open and associative youth work.

This day-long workshop and exchange meeting explores resistance against fascisms as a performative, artistic, cultural, digital and educational instrument of realizing (European) community.
