As the final part of the artistic research project Non-Knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image, the festival and symposium invite you to screenings, performances, talks, and discussions that explore the potential of the moving images and the (human and non-human) body to overturn our habitual course and change the dominant order of things. During the four days in Hamburg, we will explore ways in which we, organisms, bodies, technologies, and environments communicate beyond instrumental language, subjectivity, and reason to experience what moving images and bodies can do and how they can teach us about the limits of our thinking.

The project is led by Annika Larsson and was funded by the Swedish Research Council, and done in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm (RIA) and the Hochschule für Bildende Künste (HFBK) in Hamburg.

Further venues: ICAT—Institute for Contemporary Art & Transfer, Lerchenfeld 2a, 22081 Hamburg. And Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof (Kvhbf), Im Fernbahnhof über Gleis 3 / 4, Hannoversche Strasse 85, 21079 Hamburg.

The festival & symposium will be held in English. The event will be recorded and can then be viewed afterwards here. You can find the detailed program here.
