TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
FABULATING ALTERNATIVE IMAGINARIES IN ART & LIFE
Studium Generale Rietveld Academie and Rietveld Uncut collaborate on an extensive, artistic research trajectory in a four-day conference-festival and exhibition in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
Studium Generale is curated by Kunstverein, Hypatia Vourloumis, Daniela K. Rosner, Tavia Nyong’o, who will each inaugurate a discursive and performative programme concerning a practice of fabulation or confabulation to move into a ‘wild beyond’, welcoming alternative histories and other regimes of wanting, being and becoming.
Full programme can be found here.
TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
(...) It matters what stories tell stories. It matters what thoughts think thoughts. It matters what worlds make worlds (...)” – Donna Haraway
This year, Studium Generale & Uncut invite you to ‘take a walk on the wild side’ and enter a space beyond current systems and structures of rule; to regard ‘fabulation’ – fabricating the real, or speculative fiction – as both an artistic, social and political capacity to produce or uncover visions, stories and histories that are radically discontinuous from official and dominant narratives about our lives and our living together. The effect of this on our consciousness and imaginations may turn out to be very real or liberating.
By bringing the unthinkable and silenced into representation, fabulation can be a way or methodology to enter the wild side: a space for what lies beyond current systems and structures of rule. Studium Generale & Uncut want to take you into this ‘wild beyond’, welcoming alternative histories and other regimes of wanting, being and becoming. How do we find each other in this wild space? Who and what do we find there? How can we live, move, perform, make things, and produce knowledge in it, and represent our own stories, histories and futures?
