Let’s just look at the drives to constitute; perhaps maybe later we can look at how this informs the constituted. Let’s forget for a while the constructed stage, the other characters and images… It’s about feeling at home, being able to create the circumstances where we might fall in love. Lets for a moment just take the time to have dinner – get together and play out what we need to have in place in order to engage – to be able to reflect on what drives us. To understand our positions when taking into account our habits, gestures and temporalities. It’s a vulnerable position you say – yes indeed it is – but that might be ok. The time is blue – we are changing – we unlearn the habits of the day.

The first event of FormContent’s new program The Subject Interrupted is a dinner among friends in our Vienna studio. This gathering of voices forges the programs initial pathway ‘behavioural attitudes’. To structure this moment of research and reflection we collectively endeavore in answering the question ‘How does the subjective state enter our practice? How can we navigate its conditions, turn it into a creative energy and to what extent can it fold into a concrete proposition?’; and so we begin by The hour blue.
