"Dynamics of Interweaving Perfromance Cultures"
After ten years of research, the International Research Center "Interweaving Performance Cultures" hosts its final conference with keynotes and lectures by outstanding scholars from around the globe, among them Homi K. Bhabha, Walter Mignolo, and Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o. The conference's main topics are Generating Knowledge and Epistemologies of Performance Cultures. Accordingly, the focus lies on research questions such as how processes of interweaving between performance cultures generate knowledge and how culturally divergent knowledge systems and theories of knowledge can be acknowledged, investigated, and even methodologically interwoven. Questioning the dominant knowledge practice of academic lecturing from an artistic perspective, the internationally renowned artist Rabih Mroué will present his 'non-academic lecture' entitled "Sand In The Eyes."
A detailed program and information on the panelists is available on the IRC-Website: http://www.geisteswissenschaften.fu-berlin.de/en/v/interweaving-performance-cultures/events/conferences/Dynamics-of-Interweaving-Performance-Cultures/index.html
