The Concept and the Idiot

Intensive 2, 22.7.+23.7.2023
12:15–17:15
Schmelz 11

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 the art of asking questions and how to hold on to them. I will define a series of concepts, and simultaneously show ways to use them in the fabric of reality.

The horizon of this workshop is the relation between “body”, “concept” and “the great outdoors”. This relation rests against a western history of knowledge haunted by its history of violence.

Here are a few companions on our way:

  • Language, death, and hospitality
  • Betraying utopia, slime utopia: poems as oracle making machine
  • Time and survival
  • History of witches: shadow operations and embodied archives
  • Friendship, hauntology, 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. 

Some references – no need to read it beforehand!
