Geographies of Perception

In the programme series "SENSE", Radialsystem explores power relations within a geography of perception. Employing the perspectives of choreography, visual arts, music and workshop formats, "SENSE" investigates an embodied practice of sensory perception in four programme foci, beginning on the opening weekend of July 16th, 17th, and 18th, 2021 and until spring 2022. The programme series likewise addresses the question of how the trauma of a pandemic has affected and continues to affect our senses. The double meaning contained in the title of the series – “sense” denotes both sensation and sentiment – invokes and challenges the distinction between thinking and feeling – or theory and practice – common in the Western Enlightenment tradition of knowledge.

"SENSE" shifts mile-markers along the landscape of sensory experience, expanding the spectrum of what we grasp as perception. The programme series locates itself beyond dominant narratives of sensory experience and alters the felt and imagined parameters of perception in order to move thence toward new narratives. At the same time, "SENSE" invites a critical look at universal concepts of perception and the resulting privileges and exclusion mechanisms within societal coexistence.

Among others with Billy J. Bultheel, Kate McIntosh, Miriam Jakob & Jana Unmüßig, Nguyễn + Transitory, Sandhya Daemgen.
