Philosophical Frameworks for Experimental Artmaking

What is the role of the artist in today’s rapidly evolving political landscape? How does critical reflection inform the attempt to balance the often conflicting demands of aesthetic exploration on one hand and engaged citizenship on the other? Are there philosophical frameworks for experimental artmaking that simultaneously support authentic political resistance?

<fidget> offers a series of three reading group sessions this spring, where we will together encounter and unpack texts by both contemporary and historical thinkers, placing their work in the context of experimental artmaking and the politics of resistance.

Process Project is a series fidget initiated in June 2009 that places our creative process in a performative situation, and hinges on intimate and in-depth dialogue with audiences before and after each event. It’s not a work, but rather a new way of working. Six performances take place (at thefidget space) over the course of one week—the show is never the same twice. The week starts with a blank slate: <fidget> directors Megan Bridge (dance, choreography) and Peter Price (time-based media: sound, visuals) gather our materials and approach each performance situation as a frame that re-orients and gives new definition to our work. We invite you into our home studio to share some drinks, some snacks, some live art.
