Practising Space To practice space is thus to repeat the joyful and silent experience of childhood; it is, in a place, to be other and to move toward the other. 1 Michel de Certeau alTeriT y as a re acTiOn TO glObalisaTiOn Alterity is in danger. It is a masterpiece in peril, an object lost or missing from our system…2 There is a crisis of alterity in which globalised meaning is threatened by its opposition to the system of exchange. An artistic effort towards radical alterity is a practical one. It combines experience of actual space with strategies of

aspectual thinking, can happen as a sudden shift, or as a gradual process of shifting between Tine Melzer, Tobias Servaas: Practising Aspect Change Tine Melzer, Tobias Servaas: Practising Aspect Change interpretations or perceptions. Meanings can tip over abruptly like in jokes, but images – as objects perceived through our practice of seeing – can also shift smoothly, little by little, and unnoticed. Rhetorical shifts in language, a metaphorical transfer or interaction between image and text, can provide examples of when and how we undergo such shifts.6 On the most

Practices of Comparing A New Research Agenda Between Typological and Historical Approaches Angelika Epple/Walter Erhart Comparisons—a ubiquitous tool of powerful thinking? Introduction to a multidisciplinary field of manifold controversies1 “It’s like comparing apples and oranges”—this is what one might well say when a comparison is deemed to be impossible. This fruit-based example for not being able to compare holds at least in the Anglo-American world; Germans prefer to state the same impossibility by comparing apples and pears (likewise supposed to be in vain

Hildebrand Abstract Consumer drones are entering everyday spaces with increasing fre- quency and impact as more and more hobbyists use the aerial tool for recreational photography and videography. In this article, I seek to expand the common reference to drones as “unmanned aircraft systems” by conceptualising the hobby drone practice more broadly as a heterogeneous, mobile assemblage of virtual and physical practices

Salazar in Conversation with Roger Norum This conversation considers some of the disciplinary divides and anxieties surrounding contemporary research on media and mobility through a discussion of linkages between these two research fields and the role of non‑media centric focuses on media across the disciplines. The conversation was sparked by the three‑day workshop, Anthropologies of Media and

180 Curating Contemporary Music Festivals is where the concept of curating as a practice of critical knowledge creation can be related to the directorial, organizational work of DOMTS. This is because their approach to programming these platforms is with the goal of exploring the rich diversity of ways in which performances can be considered music theatre. They do this through inviting also artists from disciplines outside of music, productive outsiders, but also people like directors, who have experience staging music theatre but perhaps not conceiving of a

’ 11). As such, I see no sense in drawing strict arbitrary lines between what “political participation” is or is not. Indeed, I would always argue for a more inclusive measurement system. For me, the key factors in defining “political participation” are interest, engagement and commitment to the democratic community and to society, in whichever modes that they may appear – rather than a restrictive, scholarly label. 8.2 Information Practices through the Ages With the spread of the Internet, the sheer mass of information available has grown exponentially. Not

67 Frank Furtwängler Human Practice How the Problem of Ergodicity Demands a Reactivation of Anthropological Perspectives in Game Studies1 Abstract: This article presents a critical review (not a rejection) of the concept of “ergodic litera- ture” when applied to computer and video games. Therefore it goes back to some of the sources Espen Aarseth triggered when he appropriated the term from physics in 1997 for the subject of cybertext and explains the necessary consequences of the term “ergodicity” for literature and games when it is not merely used

Practicing Graham Becoming-Body between Counts and Spaces JOHANNA HEIL DEMARCATING EMBODIED SPACES OF BECOMING In Nietzsche’s Dancers, in the opening section of her chapter on the iconic Ameri- can modern dancer and choreographer Martha Graham (1894-1991), Kimerer LaMothe traces the »affirmation of life through movement« that Graham sought to invoke through her dancing, transmitting »the sensation of living« (Graham qtd. in LaMothe 2006: 151). This is how she remembers the Graham bounces, the first ex- ercise in Graham technique classes, through her

Reflective Practice On Spatial Thinking The work presented in this book has not only argued that the Japanese garden repre- sents a type of spatial exemplar in terms of soundscape and landscape qualities, but that the creative and analytical work undertaken has served to form a foil or compa- nion to the precedent created by composer and philosopher John Cage. But indeed the notion of Marjorie Siegel and the framework for enacting myriad types of transme- diations between media is not an approach only used by Cage or one that can be ex- clusively traced to the
