Studies Project: An ethics of (talking about) watching
466 Grand St New York, NY 10002
- RSVP is encouraged
- All Studies Project events are free and open to the public
How do we create the space for feedback in which artists/performers and their work is addressed properly, respectfully, and/or ethically? Can/must this space be crafted collectively? What ramifications does this have for the role of a moderator?
Additionally, how do existing systems for feedback facilitation (i.e. Critical Response Process, Fieldwork, etc.) break down when interrupted or intervened upon by supremacist ideas of aesthetics and value? Are these systems for facilitation and feedback adequate, inadequate, or beyond repair? What alternatives have been developed? How can we develop further practices of critique in dance and performance that de-center the respondent?
In this Studies Project, organized by Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal, participants André Daughtry, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Jaime Shearn Coan, Mark Travis Rivera, and Yvonne Montoya will engage in a conversation around the notion of ethics of (talking about) watching.
