Inspiration session Restlessness and Intimacy in colaboration with UVA and ASCA. Thursday 13 April, from 15.00 – 18.00. This time we are meeting in OT301 (Overtoom 301, 1054 HW Amsterdam).

The session will focus on reading (parts of) Enzio Manzini’s Liveable Proximity: Ideas for the City that Cares (2022) and the particular role of culture in navigating feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, restlessness as well as care and intimacy. We will read this text together with several short essays and interviews that have been published in Extra Extra Magazine (by Lauren Berlant, Milo Rau, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, and Patricia Pisters). The session will also include a performative reading by Philip Huff of the short story A Room for Two that he wrote for Extra Extra #12.
