The Transart Triennale: "The Imperceptible Self" will span this planet year.
Provoking, testing, debating, playing and running with the theme coined by philosopher Rosi Braidotti – “The Imperceptible Self”; this Transart Triennale will open up spaces for sharing and experiencing creative practices driven by questions of how the peripatetic, nomadic states of contemporary existence negotiate “thresholds of sustainability” via ideas of the subject-in-becoming; ego-less identities; otherness; collective horizons and the spaces in between.
Fully aware that in these times, our “interactions” with “other” cultures and with nature is both inevitable and profoundly altering; we will stray from preservation in terms of identity politics: shepherding nature and “I” to consider other modes of framing action and existence. How else can we consider the implosion of exiled states; the entropic influx into the largest cities; the sinking of smaller ones; the collapsing distance between us? How to live now in a state intensive and dynamic transformation?
The NY and Berlin Transart Triennale events launch Transart Institute's three year research theme "The Imperceptible Self". The Triennale will culminate in a dedicated issue of ELSE journal to be published in December 2016.
