Sensuous Learning (last edited: 2018)

About this exposition

In my artistic practice I operate from the intentions articulated in the Sensuous Society manifesto - a potential future world governed by aesthetic principles instead of the current economic written as a response to the financial crisis in 2008 and to the ongoing ecological crisis. Since then I have investigated the role of the sensuous in a sustainable future and currently operate from the overall research question: What is sensuous transformation and how does it contribute to a sustainable future through Sensuous Learning processes? Sensuous Learning is a conceptual frame and process-oriented tool to explore the lived learning experiences that are unfolded in the performative framework of my ongoing large-scale project Sisters Academy – The School of a Sensuous Society - through which I invented Sensuous Learning as a terminological entity as presented in the TEDx talk Sensuous Learning (2015). The findings of Sisters Academy are Sensuous Learning contributions. I will include our 'archive of detritus' (Reason, 2003) when unpacking Sensuous Learning by situating it theoretically and methodologically and by unfolding and further developing how it is also a novel immersive and interactive performance and learning method with transformative potential that may support a transition towards a more sustainable future. The concept has the potentiality of covering a wider and more differentiated field, which is already happening through our contributions in various contexts artistic, educational, activist and research-oriented which is the intersection in which we operate.
