Making Nothing Out of Something: Improvising writing and publishing in relation to practices of resistance

Tutor Team: Jorinde Seijdel, Florian Göttke, Werker Collective (Rogier Delfos &
 Marc Roig Blesa). Partner: Open! 
This study group and publishing class takes ‘improvisation’ as the substantive starting point for making and thinking. That is to say, improvisation is both form and content for a series of gatherings, conversations, seminars, workshops, reading groups, lecture-performances, publications and other activities and events. The participants reflect about and embody improvisation as generative and relational, and actively work with it as a catalyst for artistic and social experiment and practice, specifically experimental writing and publishing. Examining improvisation in relation to power and aesthetics in particular, the research focuses on the improvisational nature of struggle, protest movements and activism.
