Welcome to DOCH Open Lectures series of spring 2019! Meet professor, curator, and author André Lepecki.

Please note that this seminar is cancelled!

Pulse in the Flesh & Moving Backwardforward: elements for a critique of time


In this talk I will rehearse an attempt to consider how the "universal laws of motion" are;
a) not universal
b) not laws
c) not motion

by reading alongside two recent (yet very different) choreographic works by Danish visual artist Jesper Just and Berlin-based visual artists Pauline Broudy and Renate Lorenz. I will take as point of departure the recent operation of looking for a minoritarian physics and science in critical black studies and queer theory. I will be happy to rehearse this preliminary argument with you at DOCH in search for your comments, ideas, critiques, and disagreements.


André Lepecki is Full Professor & Chairperson at the Department of Performance Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, and independent curator, and the author of several books in dance and performance theory.
