We conceive these encounters as a series of thought provoking exercises to think with entities, objects, ideas, actions, events located at the edge of categories/states/conditions:
death/alive organic/inorganic real/fiction material/immaterial one/many us/other human/non-human visible/invisible perceptible/imperceptible accounted/unaccounted past/present/future active/passive biology/geology
We intend each of these encounters to work as sites to provoke a particular type of thinking-- the slash is the entity-- that forces us to reveal, and reckon with, questions such us: What kind of possibilities, promises, monsters, dangers--and in between-- are revealed by placing ourselves ‘at the edge’? What does thinking at ‘the edge’ offer to thought?
At a moment in which we witness the collapse of systems, and the practices and discourses that have sustained them--the master narrative of “growth” is an example--it is particularly important to create experimental spaces/slashes-- that invite the practice of thought without extant categories. We believe that “the edge” can be one experimental space, and “thinking at the edge” one of the practices to enable us to open the possibility of thinking and imagining beyond the categories and boundaries that hold us captive.
