Knowledge Holders with Slow Research Lab
Seeking Radical Affection
At the invitation of the Biennale of Sydney, Carolyn F. Strauss of Slow Research Lab will give a talk during the evening programme Art After Dark – Fluid Musings. This talk invites you to immerse yourself in theory and praxis of ‘Slow’ creativity as Carolyn takes us on a journey through her recently published book, Slow Spatial Reader: Chronicles of Radical Affection (Valiz, 2021). She shares gestures, propositions and stories from artistic fields like sculpture, installation, dramaturgy, and performance, but also architecture, politics and activism that reach into the cracks of the body, probe the fuzzy borders of atmospheres, and extend out across both geographical and epistemological coordinates. The term ‘radical affection’ unites those diverse approaches in a call for tender acts of individual and collective imagination through which new forms of caring, connection, and resilience might emerge.
Carolyn F. Strauss is a curator and creative facilitator across the fields of contemporary art, design, and emerging technologies, and is the founding director of Slow Research Lab, based in Amsterdam.
