Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) Berlin, titled Art and the Poetics of Praxis in Cognitive Capitalism, will engage with critical concerns of past programs—estrangement, individuation, and collectivity—in order to consider the performative power of poetry. Through deep readings, workshops, and lectures, we will strive to discover new words, meanings, and rhythms of resistance and reconstruction. In the tradition of Rimbaud, we seek a deregulation of language. Alternative vocabularies and models are necessary to understand and act upon our present predicament: cognitive capitalism, neo-colonialism, data surveillance. The hope is to create an experimental platform for debate and mutual self-education, with poetry and its production as a reference point for undertaking interdisciplinary, intersectional, epistemological adventures beyond our present cognitive confines to construct a new concept of homo poeticus.

SFSIA encourages applications from scholars and artists, as well as inquisitive graduate, postgraduate, and undergraduate students from fields such as art, architecture, critical writing, poetry, neuroscience, medicine, technology studies, critical theory, cultural studies, film and media studies, though all disciplines are welcome.
