Walkshop # 7: ”Traces of Intimacy”
March 10th, 2018, 2-5 pm
led by Amery Kessler and Elia Rita
“When communicative capitalism enjoins participation, it produces a field where more and more contribute but ever fewer benefit.” – Jodi Dean
In an era where technology is shifting the perception of interconnection–making physical proximity increasingly devalued and unavailable– silence might remain the only expression not subject to monetization by algorithms. Traces of intimacy invites you to wander wordlessly in the company of another. We will subtly challenge our comfort zones and establish a shared plane of intimacy through touch and trust.
Amery Kessler addresses spaces and structures between people. His work connects and separates one person from another. It suggests or invites participation and gives formless aspects of relating a more tangible presence.
Elia Rita surfaces the overlooked possibilities of urban landscapes considered unproductive and banal by capitalism through a site-oriented, interdisciplinary approach.
