Artists and scholars on intimacy

An evening with artists and scholars about what happens when we allow ourselves to become tender and intimate with one another.

Tenderness, from the Proto-Indo-European root “-ten,-tan” originally means “to stretch, or to be stretched” and shares its root with tantra. This notion is at the heart of our most intimate moments but is also studied and explored by artists and scholars. During this event we will bring together such artists and scholars who contemplate what happens when we allow ourselves to become tender and intimate with one another. Like pillow talk moments, where boundaries become porous, voices soften, time slows down, and touch takes over. 

What makes up this peculiar horizontal space, and could it be a space of healing trauma? What happens to our binary social constructs or our autonomous individualities, when we intersubjectively, intimately and consciously touch, stretch and merge with one another? And might these radical tender intimacies have the potential to critique or at least complicate dominant notions of sexuality?

This event will consist of two parts: 
(1) at the end of the afternoon, a panel talk among scholar-artists Stephanie Koziej (moderator), Neoza Goffin and Carla Besora - among others - who's interdisciplinary work stretches the boundaries of sexuality and explores our relationship to intimacy and tenderness. 
(2) an intimate evening of immersive experiences and performances, at the intersection of presentation, performance, technology, touch-based rituals and sound experience.
