invitation poetics is a set of strategies, values and sensory/meaning structures.

 

by putting together different aspects and concepts of invitation, the poetics create arrangements to versify sensitive, conceptual and procedural contents of the phenomenological experience and qualify them as experiences in the artistic manifestation (Gunther, 2013). 

who is allowed to host? how do you host a situation? how are you hosted by an event? when does hosting become guesting? can you guess the protocols by being (t)here?

language transition

sharing a common language is the basis of a community. during migration processes, shifting languages is one of the first tangible marks of be(com)ing a foreign. 

what if, instead of focusing on the process of translation as a replacing act (this language for that), we embodied the act of wor(l)ds in coexistence: a process of language transition (this language and that and then this language and the one we might invent in the slippage between this and that)

exercising the practice of listening as an universal language.
