Impro-Session with: Vivian Wang, Kaspar König, Ludwig Berger and Florian Dombois
Date: 1. October 2019 – 5:30 – 6:30
Location: Sculpture 5 at ETH Hönggerberg by Henri Presset “Figure X” (1975)
With the shift from the visible to the audible, Dombois formulates an attempt at an alternative reception of sculpture, an altered perceptual perspective of art history.
For the impro-session a PA will be installed with loudspeakers, that allow the invited artists to explore the qualities of the acoustically exceptional “Figure X” of Henri Presset and to “struck modernism“. The audience will be seated on the meadow, that forms a natural theater around the sculpture.
This edition of the Parity Talks aims to bring expert input to the table for a constructive discussion around the root causes of unequal representation of women and minorities as role models and in obtaining career encouragement and support. Specific topics for discussion include implicit bias (hiring policy and criteria, promotion, evaluation, etc.); equal opportunity (childcare, parental leave, scheduling policy, etc.); defining “excellence”; gender parity at D-ARCH; and parity in the curriculum.
