abstract video about the author(s)


Outlandish is a concert connected to Deleuze and artistic research in many ways, starting with the title, which as a synonym of “deterritorialised” refers to one of the mutual affects of philosophy and artistic practice that DARE 2015 proposes to explore. But more importantly, there are personal and material connections produced by Bernhard Lang’s Belgian premiere of The Tables are Turned (2010), Marc Ngui’s Drawings from A Thousand Plateaus (ongoing since 2004), and Juan Parra C.’s The Egg, which is both the electronic Dogon Egg he built and the new piece he will premiere.
