Art and theory encounter one another –
A series of symposia of the NRW KULTURsekretariat in cooperation with theatres from North Rhine-Westphalia

In cooperation with theatres in North Rhine-Westphalia, the NRW KULTURsekretariat is organising a series of symposia entitled “Sichtungen” (Sightings) in 2014, in which art and theory encounter one another in a regular cycle. The dawning of the digital age has brought about a rapid change in the constellation of the different arts with one another. The series focuses on current developments by looking at the complex relations of individual forms with one another and elaborating on those changes against the dynamic backdrop of the accelerated present.

The first symposium on 10 and 11 January 2014 in the Theater an der Ruhr in Mülheim dealt with the relationship between image and music: Both develop their own lines of significance that transform what is happening in the space. In interaction with the senses, the different art forms generate a maelstrom of perception that promises happiness. The artists and philosophers Carola Bauckholt, Lambert Wiesing, Marcus Steinweg, Klaus Theweleit, Thomas Meinecke and Hubertus von Amelunxen have investigated the subterranean connections of the senses and gauge the relationships of aesthetic structures in presentations and discussions.

The “Symposium II: homo oeconomicus” takes place at the Schlosstheater Moers on 20/21 June 2014. As a counter-model to the neo-liberal concept of people, this symposium discusses models of cohabitation, which are based on the criteria of quality of life instead of effectiveness, acceleration and growth. In doing so, it will also deal with the area of urbanity, the future of social systems as well as new forms and definitions of solidarity. Symposium III follows in November 2014 in the Forum Freies Theater in Düsseldorf on the topic of “Authenticity and difference”. While the world is becoming increasingly uniform and the pressure on individuals to conform is growing, talk and reality shows very successfully suggest mass-media potentials for living out the real, the personal, the authentic. Yet where do the dream, the frenzy and the artistic go, which formed a basis of the classical modern? “Symposium IV: Operation Future” will follow at the Theater Bielefeld in the spring of 2015.
