Online Wednesday July 27 11am BST
The /origin\forward/slash\ group, currently on a digital placement at Flat Time House, invite you to a live presentation by five of their members:
How can art be a location or place of ‘dwelling’ in our contemporary situation and why should it matter to us? What does it mean to be ‘at-home-in-the-world’ and if, as Heidegger maintained, we are suffering from the ‘plight of homelessness’, does this imply that domestic, artistic or philosophical action is called for? Maybe all these areas need to combine and risk blurring boundaries (we call this the ‘Heidegger Lasagne’)? We welcome you at our virtual table where each of us shares through thinking and materials their current location in the House of Art. Presentations will be followed by open discussion together. We are particularly keen to honour video link technology’s role during the past few years in affording relationships, connections and idea formation across the planet.
/origin\forward/slash\ is a small band of artists and philosopher-theorists who, since the start of the pandemic, have been on a digital residency at Flat Time House (creating and occupying the virtual room, The Other Hand). They have been inhabiting zoom discussions for with and against the ideas of Martin Heidegger and exploring ways of making-thinking together in relationship to the matters of significance which arise between them.
/origin\forward/slash\ group members presenting at this event will be: Sacha Golub, Marie Hay, Jo Malt, Hester Reeve and Mark Titmarsh.
The /origin\forward/slash\ group are Steven Claydon (Independent), Marie Hay (De Montfort University), Sacha Golob (Kings College, London), Jo Malt (Kings College, London), Hester Reeve (Sheffield Hallam University), Mark Titmarsh (University of Technology, Sydney), Georgios Tsagdis (Leiden University | Erasmus University Rotterdam). This project is lead by Hester Reeve (Reader in Fine Art, Sheffield Hallam University) in association with The Centre for Philosophy and Visual Arts (Kings College London).
The /origin\forward/slash\ group will launch an exhibition at Flat Time House in 2023.
