The Concept and the Idiot

This philosophy workshop unfolds possible ways to navigate in the nervous sea of concepts, while holding on to our own idiocy. It is an introduction to theory as a series of questions, and as an oratory, collective adventure. The horizon of this workshop is the historicised relation between "body", "concept" and "the great outdoors". This relation rests in a western history of knowledge haunted by its history of violence.

It is an introduction to a theory-based practice, and a critical exposition of questions that intersect philosophy and discourses found in radical politics and contemporary art.

Here are a few companions on our way:

• Language, death, and hospitality: what is a milieu?

• Difference and repetition: various time theories and their political subconscious

• History of witches – how to make memory while gazing at shadows?

• Friendship, hauntology, mathematics, science fiction: philosophy and the great outdoors

• The Greek art of asking questions

You don’t need to know anything about philosophy. I will share my practice with you, we will read some texts together, and you can ask as many questions as you please. This is also a workshop for people who are interested in how to transmit and share a theory-based practice. Bring some pens and paper if you wish, and some idiotic ideas.
