THE PROJECT OF THE MONTH (Sep/Dec 2013): The Textimage ERANOS DIALOG.

The Textimage ERANOS DIALOG. Christiane ten Hoevel und Stella Veciana.

The article presents the ERANOS DIALOG as a stimulating dialogue format for the development of inter / transdisciplinary projects. Eranos in ancient Greece was originally a friends’ banquet where everyone contributed food. In a figurative sense, today Eranos is a mental feast, where the guests share, for example, a speech, a song, a drawing or their openness to improvise at joint talks and discussions. The talks follow the »open space principles« of a mini symposium: the contributions follow each other without any discussion in between, like pearls on a string.

Out of the shared experience of the ERANOS DIALOGUE, Christiane ten Hoevel and Stella Veciana developed together an experimental »text image«. Starting from the concept ERANOS DIALOGUE itself, each letter was associated with significant aspects of the experience gained during ERANOS DIALOGUE: like »exchanging« for »e« or »resting« for »r«. As a next step, each artist associated these verbs with an image, which  evolved into a description of a storyline. Comparing the descriptions of each verb created a common semantic intersection. Linear links with different colors which distinguish new relations of meaning and interpretative connections can now be seen merging in an overall optical image of rich reciprocal exchange.

THE THEME OF THE MONTH (Jan/Apr 2013): »Low-tech« versus »high-tech« cooperation: the politically charged potatoes of Víctor Grippo and the controversial BMW Guggenheim Lab Berlin. Stella Veciana.

In the seventies, the Argentine chemist and artist Victor Grippo developed a number of »low-tech experiments« using potatoes as an energy crop. With the choice of potatoes, he questioned the underlying social, political, historical, scientific and technological contexts of his energy-related experiments. Today the issues and »low-tech models« he raised are still relevant, especially regarding how international research cooperation between industrialized, emerging and developing countries should function.
