Low Text:Footnotes. After The Eclipse. 27.11.

The word “footnotes” invokes a suspicion that all text – despite the arbitrary nature of the sign, its artificial texture – remains a body, a body standing on a couple of feet. Located at the bottom, footnotes give this body hold. In a way, these “lower” situated voices document exchanges that have been continuously held in the evolution of the work. Such hierarchy produced along the way reveals the power dynamics between what is put to the front and belongs to the main narrative and what is cast aside to the margins.

Taking inspiration from a literary text, we invite artists, thinkers, poets, and musicians to contemplate the role of a comment, reference, footnote in the broadest sense. This session aims to provide a playful arena for a series of acrobatic exercises that invert foot vs. head hierarchies: an eccentric upheaval of the base that shapes the superstructure, of the queer, suppressed limbs of thought!
