During this special evening the Embodied Knowledge Bureau and aux), two student-led educational platforms operating at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Sandberg Instituut, will come together to share their practices. They will look back on their year of work researching, thinking and making around sound and the body in art and design education.
This event invites you to experience their space of exploration first hand: presentations by both platforms will be followed by performances and techno-meditation sets by guest artists, which will then dissolve into an open party.
The Embodied Knowledge Bureau is a space for investigating, reclaiming, and engaging the body within artistic education. Our platform integrates movement and somatic workshops, discussions, lectures, deep listening events, and film screenings as ways of mending current disciplinary blind spots and barriers that often exist between academics, visual artists and movement practitioners.
aux) is an initiative that aims to collectively question vision-dependent frames of making and knowing. The platform offers a program that covers a spectrum of perspectives addressing sonic experiences and listening as forms of research and expression. aux) hosts events at the intersection of sound art, experimental music, and audio culture, supporting students to create and participate in concerts, listening sessions, workshops, and talks, among other activities.
