reflections on the 2022 IDOCDE symposium

I wrote this editorial in the attempt to begin weaving a name for a feeling I’ve nursed since leaving Vienna on Tuesday, July the 26th, 2022. Namely, that with the 10th IDOCDE symposium The Rest of Art, a Manifesto we–members of the IDOCDE community–celebrated an end. An end of an era. An end of an era of trial and error. An end of an era of speculation. An end of an era of uncertainty.

One question remains. What begins where what ends?

Mind the Dance

MIND THE DANCE is a collection of essays, manuals, scores, exercises, and maps; giving voice to a multitude of stances, ideas, and applications in and around documenting movement. It aims to motivate and empower the reader-teacher-artist to use creative documenting to enhance their teaching and artistic practice.

The IDOCDE project REFLEX Europe is one of the recipients of the 2019 Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Award.
