We are responsible for the Interdisciplinary Artistic Practice side of Studium Generale and are joined on the Academic side by our colleague, philosopher and author Philipp Hübl who also joined for this semester.

Martin Howse and Dan have just recorded a walk near Martin’s studio in Mitte which will be broadcast this Sunday 17 May at 10pm on reboot.fm During the hour-long walk, we talk about Martin’s visit to two of the Stadterweitern labs organised by Sabine Zahn that Andrea Keiz and Dan devised last week. Martin kindly lent his electromagnetic detektors that were used in the Stadterweitern labs. UPDATE: if you missed the broadcast, you can listen to the programme here on reboot.fm’s mixcloud channel
Dan is one of the performers and artists you can phone as part of the telephone version of She She Pop’s Kanon. Lines will be open from 8pm on Thursday 14, Friday 15 and Saturday 16 May. Details on the Hebbel am Ufer website.
Dan prepared a series of lab experiments in urban space with Andrea Keiz as part of the series of labs called Stadterweitern by Sabine Zahn. You can find out more on the Stadterweitern website, as well as some sample excercises to do anywhere and feed into the research process.
Carrying on from the last post about it being the year of guest appearances, Dan has been invited to be a guest performer in She She Pop’s latest work Kanon, which will premiere in HAU 2 in Berlin on Friday 22 November. He will be performing on Saturday 23, Sunday 24 and Monday 25 November and the last evening is Tuesday 26. See the HAU site for ticket details.
It’s the year of performing in other people’s work this year. After both of us having a wonderful time developing Fremdgehen with Sabine Zahn in the Summer, Dan has been asked to act as an English guide for two of Club Real’s events around their Parliament of Organisms, Beyond Nature. The first event was the opening and first sitting of the Parliament of Organisms in Osloer Str on 9 September and more recently, there was the People’s Judicial Proceedings at Ballhaus Ost on 3 November. Keep an eye out on Club Real’s web site (link above) for forthcoming dates.
We are very pleased to be presenting a lecture performance on Wednesday 2nd October at about 6pm at the Floating University in Berlin. Map here. We are part of the open programme curated on this instance by Sabine Zahn, with whom we worked on Fremdgehen this summer.
The drop in day will begin at 4pm with a participatory workshop led by Sabine and Arantxa Martinez. We will be performing at around 6pm, followed by a screening of THE VISITOR by Katarina Schröter.
