DIZZINESS — A Resource

Ruth Anderwald

Introduction

For our project ‘Dizziness–A Resource’, we study dizziness, comprising its complementary areas of experience and reflection on it. Based on artistic, art-historical, philosophical and natural scientific sources, we address questions with respect to contemporary art. Read More.

Balancing Togetherness

Can dizziness be a resource? What remains after unsettledness and disorientation? And how can we see communities find their balance in uncertain situations? Particularly now, in times of ubiquitous invocations of global crisis, these questions of collective balancing and balancing collectives are more relevant than ever. Read More.

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.

Highmat

Based on the assumption that there is a human tendency toward seeking ecstatic feelings and risk, resulting in dangerous outcomes and potentially addiction, Gerald Koller trains individuals in local communities, citizen organizations (COs), and regional government programs to develop responsible behavior in risky settings.

Staggering Through Tragedy

If one notes the amount of staggering performed or stammered by characters in Waiting for Godot, it can be quite surprising. In fact, few plays contain characters that spend as much time stumbling or tottering about the stage. It is almost as if they are sailors in the midst of a violent squall, but this is not the case.

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.

Taumel/Vertigo

Confronting the cinematic image is always associated with a certain loss of control. The avantgarde could not have made this relation more explicit. What makes our heads spin and what state of mind is vertigo? 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.
