Rebecca Schneider: Arts of Gesture in Lateral Time and Questions of Transmission
• Days with event
In this talk, Rebecca Schneider will lift out key concepts from a current book project on gesture titled Standing Still Moving: The Arts of Gesture in Lateral Time. Thinking about gesture as a means of amongness, wit(h)ness, and besideness in time-based arts, Schneider will explore the idea of bodies and objects as cross-temporal, gestural, and composed in and as recurrence. When not only biological bodies but objects moving in geologic time are approached as inter(in)animate agents that gesture, call, and respond, how might ideas around arts transmission and conservation change? To take up this question, we will think together about how gesture, body jumping, and dance might be considered modes of memory and ethics of response-ability.
