When dizzy we cannot distinguish between inside and outside.
This working symposium aims to discuss ways of localizing, recognizing, approaching, and countering dizziness on different scales and disciplines – from the somatic to the built environment to interspecies and post-colonial contexts.
How does an artist live and work in isolation? How can he/she follow up on exhibition commitments? What kind of artistic strategies should be developed in order to maintain a presence and contact with the public in this situation? What would then be the role of the curator, and of the institution in general, in extreme situations where mobility is imperiled?
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.
