Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond, Karoline Feyertag, Dizziness — A Resource, opening lecture at Navigating the Unknown – Fears and Pleasures of Dizziness.
CCA, Center for Contemporary Art – Tel Aviv.
Monday, 21 March, 2016.
This opening lecture discusses dizziness and compossibility with regard to the on-going research-creation project Dizziness–A Resource (2014-17) at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. ‘Dizziness’ is an English translation of the German word ‘Taumel’, which implies a broader semantic field including notions of physical and emotional disequilibrium, staggering, confusion, uncertainty, and turmoil. When approached as a concept, dizziness reveals its function as a fertile resource.
