TOGETHER ALONE is an atmosphere, it is an embodied experience. TOGETHER ALONE is a way of paying attention without judging or more mildly, without having an opinion about what “paying attention” looks like. TOGETHER ALONE is about dancing without judging or more mildly, without having an opinion about what “dancing” looks like. TOGETHER ALONE is, in other words, what makes experiencing first possible.
TOGETHER ALONE is crucial for the exploration of anti-anticipatory aesthetic. for if we become able to experience first, we’ll have something to observe, we’ll have something to study. it is a commitment to being held accountable, to yourself first, and to your community. TOGETHER ALONE is an expression of a desire towards creating the kind of conditions that will make actual research possible. TOGETHER ALONE is about studying subjectivity, and critically reflecting and holding the history of objectivity accountable. TOGETHER ALONE is a practice, it is an investment and a salute to a queer futurity.
TOGETHER ALONE commits to working on a series of self-reflective, norm- critical, non-exclusive, and non-judgemental creative practices and works of art that engage in critical thinking of form and/or construct, in order to expose what form or construct hide or otherwise make non-recognisable.
