Event – the second Making Sense colloquium (this poster is also one of my paintings). Making Sense lies at the forefront of my vision. This is a loose and expanding collective of artists and thinkers engaged in ‘making sense’, who have gathered in response to my research and art practice, to develop an act of reflection that is at once conceptual, sensual, accessible, and transdisciplinary. This movement has a common striving to cross between modes of theory and praxis and to find a common language in the contemporary context. I have organized yearly colloquia in collaboration with philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy at the University of Cambridge; with philosopher Bernard Stiegler in 2010 at the Centre Pompidou in Paris; with Elaine Scarry, at the Whitney Humanities Center at Yale. This year we are at The Metropolitan Museum, New York, with Robert Storr. These colloquia draw together a creative community of thinkers and practitioners engaged in the worlds of art, aesthetic philosophy, contemporary theory, psychiatry and psychology who communicate and collaborate in new dimensions and media to produce a language and knowledge that is sensuous, invigorating, accessible and politically active.
