In conversation with
Harald Katzmair
Instigate Un-Balance

It’s always the same: the point is that on the one hand we are in danger of burning up, of evaporating, of going too fast, of dissolving, and on the other hand we are in danger of freezing, rigidifying, of becoming mummified and unable to move. Dizziness contains within it both extremes. Read More.

Trance in Anthropology and Practice

Taumel – Navigating in the Unknown

The process of slipping into dizzying freefall, of sliding into uncertainty, becoming stuck, losing one’s way, giving up are as much actions as occurrences, both active and passive. Dizziness is a midway state at the point where everything and nothing seems possible, where certainty and uncertainty are in superposition, marked by an increasing loss of control. Read More.

Taumel – On the Borders of the Unknown

The end of the extent of our knowledge defines the borders of our world as we know it. Since the concept of the world as a plate, right up to the discovery of the existence of dark matter, this has not changed. Read More.
