Philosophy Unbound is a collective devoted to opening up new forms and spaces for philosophy outside its classical habitats. After many successful events, workshops and performances in Vienna, Austria and Berlin, Germany, Philosophy Unbound will now investigate the possibilities of its format in New Delhi, India.
Philosophy Unbound organises a two day mini-festival for performance and philosophy at the School of Arts and Aesthetics (SAA) at JNU from 9th to 10th of March 2018. In line with this open format, the topic of March’s event is DETEXT. Our format is held very open and we encouraged everybody – be it students, artists or researchers of various fields to send us their proposals for this first interdisciplinary gathering of that kind. Since most of our institutions regard only textual output as “serious” contributions, we want to open a space to detext and give you freedom to express your ideas outside the mastermedium of text. Show us an installation without having to worry about an explanatory text, give us a lecture without all the necessary footnotes to a rigid canon, dance your philosophical ideals without having to open your mouth to utter complete phrases! The program includes installations, video-projections, performances, reading sessions, lectures and much more.
Philosophy Unbound: DE:TEXT will take place on 9th & 10th of March 2018, 10-21h at the School of Arts & Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University
