steirischer herbst - apply now for herbst Academy

herbst Academy 2017: workshop call | Where are we now? Austria, October 10–13, 2017. The herbst Academy is a discursive space in the midst of steirischer herbst festival, taking place in and around Graz in Southern Austria. Apply now.

Two workshops lasting four days and two discursive nights complement each other to create a tightly packed examination of the main question of the 50th iteration of the festival: “Where Are We Now?”

We would like to take this anniversary as an occasion to pause for a moment to ask ourselves whether we might not define our place in the world and the roads that we aim to take differently. After all, the languages used so far to talk about the future appear to tie us down to present-day horizons. What could a different system of reference look like? What are its core values? What languages does it need? What kind of thinking? And in what spaces and conditions could this thinking be successful?
