By addressing the propaganda of progress, consumption and self-referentiality, Slovenian dramaturge, publicist and producer Jasmina Založnik will engage in a conversation about the performativity of walking in the context of art.

We’re sharing pdf of the text In Search of a Multi_dimensional Life: Decolonization of Presence which was publush in the bilingual booklet – link is available here.

walk · listen · create hosts walk · listen · café, a bi-weekly (once every two weeks) online meeting for creatives in the fields of walking and sound art. Every ‘café’ lasts between 1 and 2 hours, is headed by an expert introducing a particular topic, and followed by an open discussion on the topic at hand. Online meetings are hosted through Jitsi or similar. Participants will be sent the conference link and password shortly before the event kicks off. This time, Geert Vermeire will be the moderator of the evening.

Jasmina Založnik is interested in a sound walk as a form that evades spectacularity of art products, the established difference and playing with the unpredictable and random, the slowing down of our daily rhythm, experientiality, embodiment, the relation between the external and internal and, finally, transposition from a monological to dialogical form as a possible platform of inclusivity and ethics.

Jasmina Založnik is a dramaturge, publicist and producer primarily engaged in the field of contemporary dance. Over the last years, she has focused on recent histories of contemporary performing art and choreography, and their multiple relations to everyday life. She is interested in strategies of social politicization and emancipation. Založnik holds a PhD in film and visual culture from the University of Aberdeen.
