We started our second meeting of TQW DOC on 9th April with a lecture of three excerpts which were provided by Lisa Moravec in advance:

Foucault, Überwachen und Strafen: Die Geburt des Gefängnisses

Haraway, When Species Meet

Rancière, The Aesthetic Revolution and Its Outcomes

After discussing the texts and their complex of problems, Lisa Moravec put them in relation to her own thesis Horses (still) in Motion: The Techniques of “Dress-aging” the Body in Performance, its Technologies of Documentation, and its leftovers (1968–2016) which she is currently working on at the Royal Holloway University in London.

Charlotta Ruth presented her concept of Meta-Liveness that she develops in the frame of her PhD in Artistic Research at the University of applied art Vienna with the title Choreographic Contingencies for on and offline.  In addition to her presentation, she gave physical exercises with diverse forms of presence.

Leander Gussmann, a member of the ÖH Doc Board of the Academy of fine Arts, proposed the possibility to develop a format together that can be funded by the ÖH. After brainstorming we agreed to a Peer to Peer Skill Exchchange Workshop day which will be held before summer.

Further participants of the discussion: Jette Büchsenschütz, Marijeta Karlovic Graf, Gianna Prein, Olive Schellander and Alina Tretinjak.
