Lectures, discussion, performance
Join us for an afternoon program exploring the deviate potential of doubt.

Uncertainty Seminars is a series of hybrid and interdisciplinary activities that utilize doubt and hesitation as speculative strategies for exploring the liquid nature of our times. Uncertainty Seminars: The Strange Escape proposes uncertainty as a playful and imaginative state of mind — one that departs from conventional societal norms and models. The program instinctively embraces strangeness and impractical alternatives, re-routing the logic that we employ when dealing with fundamental change.

With contributions by:
Ramon Amaro - thinker and lecturer in philosophy, machine learning and black study
Jude Crilly - visual artist
Johanna Koljonen - media analyst, experience designer and LARP expert
The Rodina - design studio

In tandem with Uncertainty Seminars: The Strange Escape we present DIM - A Transformation Game: a participatory live event with up to 18 participants. Transformation Games is an experimental discipline that attempts to re-imagine the world around us through alternative social models. During the afternoon, participants blend elements of roleplay, rituals and everyday routines into a new, jointly-created experience. Everyone is free to join in and no prior experience is required. However, capacity is limited. >> click here to sign up and read more
