To continue to explore links and connections with other international research groups, Performing Objects will meet with the members of 'The Disembodied Voice' from London who will come over for 4 days to Brussels.
The Disembodied Voice: Through critical engagement, discursive processes and production this collaborative research project sets out to investigate the relationship between the disembodied voice and contemporary visual culture. Working together the group will explore an array of questions and ideas relating to their individual practices and concepts surrounding the disembodied voice. The group work across different fields, including film making, performance, writing, curating and archiving. The group will explore ideas and complexities of the disembodied voice, leaving room for unexpected discoveries, connections and expansions of the subject. They will take part in workshops, site visits and activities held by guest speakers from a variety of fields to expand on their practice. The research process will allow for further input by hosting open public events throughout the project.
