Thought in Action – Practicing Techniques of Immanent Critique
30 January 2016
If relations are the stuff that everything is made of, their co-emergence in experience occurs through tendencies not causalities. In artistic and philosophical practices processes of creation often move along tendencies – the fragile terrain of uncertainty of how things will play out in the end. The traditional gesture of critical analysis, on the other hand, seems to work in the opposite direction: critical analysis is tied to an accepted body of knowledge from which it legitimizes its point of view. In this workshop we will explore forms of immanent critique that acknowledge the active force of tendencies in creative processes and by that inventing new ways of practicing critique affirmatively.
