REGISTRATION FORM – COLLECTIVITY & IN(TER)DEPENDENCE
 Symposium on Performative Arts
This is a continuation of COLLECTIVITY/RESPONSIBILITY/PERFORMATIVITY – Symposium on Performative Arts held at Central European University in September 2016. It is a hybrid, cultural-academic event bringing together academics, performing artists and cultural activists at CEU to engender dialogues between representatives of thought and creativity committed to and facilitated by the principles of democratic freedom. These dialogues may be focused on ways in which these inhabitants of different areas of reflection can defend their autonomy but the resulting insights will have bearing on a more general thought of how to ensure the freedom of creativity in the current political climate of neoliberal and illiberal austerities. What makes us independent, interdependent, and dependent? CEU’s commitment to a renewed inquiry into what open society can mean has a very close connection to what makes independent arts production a political question: performance art always demands collectivity, and mobilization as it requires the capacity to induce a resonance with an audience. It is in this resonance, always embodied and affective, that the collective is maintained for the duration of and arguably beyond the performance. Performative arts are an intrinsic democratic value of exceptional worth as its work especially illuminates the links between affect, politics, publics, and collectivity in general.

Main topics in 2017:
IN(TER)DEPENDENCE

What is artistic independence? How does artistic independence foster connections? How do independence and interdependence foster one another? What do we need for independence? And what can we gain artistically and politically from our need to rely on others? How does independence and interdependence feel?

COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY

What are the forms of possible collaboration today? How can we create a sustainable community by collaboration? What are the external constraints that foster and obstruct collaborative work? How do we find ways of working together?

PARTICIPATORY ACTIVISM
How does independent art compel action? What are the connections between involving the audience and political mobilization in general? What is the cultural space of participatory activism? What are its current limits and where do we see potential for new encounters: what are the prospects of mobilization?
