“Communications: Dance, Politics and Co-Immunity” &
“thinking – resisting – reading the political”
(Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany, 11 - 14 November 2010)
The recently founded MA Studies in „Choreography and Performance“ and the Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture at Justus-Liebig-University Giessen will be holding two cooperating conferences with similar subjects but different foci. The international symposium „Communications: Dance, Politics and Co-Immunity“, organized by the MA program in „Choreography and Performance“, asks to what extent dance, in its history as well as its contemporary development, is linked to concepts of the political. The conference „thinking - resisting - reading the political“, organized by the Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture, asks what specific perspectives and methodological consequences arise for the study of culture that are informed by recent deliberations on the relationship of the political and the aesthetic. The conferences are accompanied by a mini dance festival featuring performances by Mette Ingvartsen, Sasa Asentic and Xavier Le Roy.
Shared key-note speeches will be given by Jacques Rancière, Brian Massumi/Erin Manning, Simon Critchley and Oliver Marchart.
Further information, the concepts of each respective conference and a preliminary schedule are posted on the conferences’ website: www.dance-politics.de / www.thinking-resistance.de
