Spatial Confusion.
Episodes from the
Experimental History of Vertigo

Keeping our bodily balance is a continuous performance, including the effort to keep the erect posture against gravity. However, since this performance remains strictly subliminal we become aware of the state of equilibrium only in the event of disruption: in the very moment we loose our balance, stumble and fall, or more generally, when the relation between the body and the surrounding world is irritated, disturbed, or interrupted as it is characteristic in the state of vertigo.

Staggering Through Tragedy

If one notes the amount of staggering performed or stammered by characters in Waiting for Godot, it can be quite surprising.

Queering Dizziness

There is a lot of “queering something” these days, although Queer Theory is certainly not yet part of the major scientific or philosophical discourse. I will argue that dizziness is not just another concept, which needs queering, but that dizziness is fundamentally linked to queerness. Read More.

Dizziness in
Compossible Spaces

How did we succeed to make dizziness a sort of commonplace? After several cross-disciplinary gatherings in the course of the research project ‘Dizziness–A Resource’, it became clear that the introduction of the concept of dizziness into divergent research fields created a compossible space, formed by our common interest in the experience of and reflection on dizziness.
