Performance Design som Dannelse af Begær

Publikation: Bidrag til konferenceKonferenceabstrakt til konference

Resumé

Confronted with the ubiquitous presence of preprogramed desires we propose Performance Design as a utopian institution for the education of desire. The utopian education of desire offers a potential and systematic creation of spaces that enable us “to imagine wanting something else, something qualitatively different” (Levitas 2013: 113). PD is uniquely suited to such an educational task, because it can function as a framework for not only designing alternative ways of being through affective interventions and estrangements, but also playing them out in performance. A modus operandi rather than a discipline. Such a utopian PD would be an institution without borders. A mobilized and mobilizing institution enjoying an unruly, symbiotic or even parasitic metabolism with academic faculties (art, Geisteswissenschaft, technology, science) and sites for performance (bodies, home, workplace, city, planet). We contend that without the educational utopia of performance design; without the utopian pockets and impulses it may trace and without the utopian programs it may provide from within, both the theatre, the museum and the university would be much poorer institutions.
