100 Ideas on 100 Thoughts: an open research project

Documenta 13 notebooks

Documenta 13 notebooks

Last week i posted about the talk between Luca Massimo Barbero and Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev. Today i’m writing you a follow up because a very interesting thing happened.

Thanks to this post i was invited to take part of the project 100 Ideas on 100 Thoughts ideated by ” a.r.t.e.s. Research School”, the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of the Arts and Humanities Faculty of the University of Cologne.

The project consist in inviting  students and young scholars from different fields of study to analyse,discuss, and question the thoughts proposed in the notebooks 100 Notes – 100 Thoughts /100 Notizen – 100 Gedanke. Indeed, as prelude to dOCUMENTA (13) (Kassel, 9th June – 16th September 2012), the artistic direction, in collaboration with Hatje Cantz is publishing a series of notebooks commissioning essays, collaborations and conversations to professionals from different disciplines (art, science, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, economic, political theory, language, literature studies and poetry).
 Due to the strong participatory and international spirit of the project, brainstorming, dialogue and debate will be realised primarily through a blog.
People are invited to Read and critically approach one notebook, briefly presenting on the blog its content as well as the thoughts, reflections, and ideas which arise while reading, Interact with other participants, discussing and  debating, and meet during two appointments in Cologne and Kassel.
I personally think that this is really an interesting project that prove how new tools like blogs can be used by artistic institution to avoid and expand the limit of the distance, to actively involve people of different countries, to create a broad discussion and communication about the event.
I will partecipate, and you?
