Marika Hedemyr & Ingrid Cogne introduce their book Dansbaren - The Mob without Flash and lead a discussion. A light lunch will be provided for free.

Goldsmiths Seminar Room

Dansbaren — The Mob without Flash is a tool that spurs dialogue and thought, giving you long-lasting inspiration! A publication on art, bodies, politics and self organisation; it’s an essential knowledge base for critical thinking and reflections on working as an artist in general, and as a dance artist in particular.

This publication consists of two parts: a book dedicated to critical thinking in the field of dance, choreography and self organisation, and a tablecloth printed with topics for discussion. It unfolds complex issues in an easy-to-use way, literally putting dance discourse on the table. Edited by Ingrid Cogne and Marika Hedemyr. Published by the Swedish artist-run platform Dansbyrån.

Based on artistic practice, the chapters cover topics of dialogue formats, power relations, aesthetics, self-organisation, sharing knowledge, appropriating language, artistic practice itself, history making and feedback methods.
