    Entanglement Research Group (RCA)

    The Research Group: Entanglement seeks to establish a kind of ‘lab’, a weekly experimental site foregrounding one’s artphilosophyvoicetonguequantumphysicswork through the strange visceral economies of what constitutes an ‘is’ (or even the is):

    We will commence the Entanglement in the New Year 2018 with Foucault’s The Courage of Truth read with and against Bataille’s Meditations and Haraway’s Tentacular Thinking Entanglement enables (or will try to enable) a new form of contemporary art, philosophy/erotic praxis, poetics and the logics of sense we call ‘inhabited philosophy’. All work(s) will be discussed / voiced / heard / exchanged bearing in mind a few interlocutors: Friedrich Nietzsche, Isabelle Stengers, Karen Barad, Benoit Mandelbrot, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Søren Kierkegaard, Kathy Acker, Euripides, Martin Heidegger, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, J-F Lyotard, RAW, Wittgenstein, Angela Davis.
