How to improvise on a symposium?
This question became practice during a four day ongoing event at ExtraCity. Participants of the master courses of St. Lucas, Artesis, and AKV/St. Joost worked together in finding out what “symprovising” could be.
Let’s approach theoretical reflection through improvising. Trying to reflect and work on the spot: à l’improviste; using skills, work, procedures, ideas, texts, inventions, and coincidence.
The experiment was rounded up during a final presentation of results, stories, and thoughts with spotlighted spiderwebs, dance, collages, broken walls, and sadly a piece of Remy’s finger cut off.
With: Kasper Bosmans, Elsbeth Ciesluk, Remy Habets, Pim Kersten, Theodora Kotsi, Saori Kuno, Raphael Langmair, Tanya Long, Piotr Piskozub, Nelleke Schiere, Anna Stergiou, Timothy Van de Laar.
Remy Habets demolished the cardboard wall of ExtraCity’s upper floor.

And lots of lunches
