Proto-Call / WOF 2016 / C. Lars Schuchert
With the WOF 2016 we are setting aside time for a journey. Following the un-necessity of ornament, we will go for walks – metaphorically and in reality, discovering places of E.L. Kirchner – setting forth to dreams may come. Finding ourselves in unexpected topoi, implanting the uncontrolled challenge of serendipity by trusting people to improvise navigation, and provide models as toys for tools. Within a given rhythm of walks and talks, we will meet in matter, performances, presentations, and dialogue.
To set the stage and content of the WOF 2016, we ask for proposals in formats which are open to experimentation and reflection while addressing topics of gesture and practice, model and example. We are asking for proposals to conclude what the WOF 2016 will have been once it is over: whom you will have met, what topics will have been discussed, what you will have discovered, etc.
Engaging this utopian picture in retrospective future feedback, we will unroll the ornamental present towards the WOF 2016, finalizing in the past of un-production.
As warm-up, we ask for the contribution in the sense of a «Letter of Interest» at our website, proposing your interest and involvement at the WOF 2016 and reaction to the following question:
- How can the metaphor of a «model» help to understand the connection between ornament and unproductive activity?
