Fabulation for Future - Call for Participants

The international summer school Masterclass Artistic Research in Film and Philosophy "Fabulation for Future" is an invitation to Master, PhD or Postdoc level students and researchers to become part of a fictive “International Committee to Save the Earth through Speculative Fabulation”. 

The Masterclass is divided into two parts: a symposium and a workshop. During both participants will reflect on our changing perception of the earth caused by three interconnected factors: the global ecological crisis, the corona pandemic and the new audiovisual proximity among humans. We are increasingly operating through digital immersion and audiovisual processes while keeping physical distance. At the heart of the Masterclass, then, is the invitation to a collective critical rethinking of the human condition; the development of a post-anthropocentric worldview for a sustainable future on planet Earth, where human and non-human species coexist. The goal is to build on a worldwide network of thinkers and filmmakers. Participants from different continents will collectively develop artistic actions, fabulative concepts, speculative narratives and audiovisual projects involving and challenging the recently emerged digital platforms.

We welcome German and international participants at Master, PhD or Postdoc level from the humanities, film studies, philosophy, literature, media art and film;  they are invited to become part of a fictive “International Committee to Save the Earth through Speculative Fabulation”. Its deputies will meet during the symposium, exchange in form of (audiovisual) talks, and later work together in project groups. Interested in becoming a deputy?
