:::::: BRIEF DESCRIPTION ::::::
The AND Summer Schools are an annual intensive program taking place in Lisbon. Each edition proposes a temporary zone of attention, experiential and collective investigation, having a transversal question at its core. Over a period of two weeks (totalling 100 hours), we propose an immersive time-space for the exchange of procedures for collective improvisation-creation and co-positioning (with/in) the common, working with/through the body as our main matter and the Modus Operandi AND as a driving and mediating tool. Through durational embodied experimentations and exercises of reciprocity and care for oneself and others we seek to generate attention to the processes and consequences of what (and especially how) we do and what that does to us in return: gestures, words, habits, perspectives, postures, modulations. The summer schools are aimed at artists, researchers, and socially engaged practitioners of any field who are interested in re-materializing crystallized knowledge into inventive and (in)sufficient knowledge(s), through the investigation of the politics of togetherness and experiential (un)learning.
