Crowdsourcing an Original Contribution to Knowledge: Or, How to Do Things with (Un)Sound Non-Philosophy
A performance-presentation by Kevin Logan examining the interconnectivity between Philosophy, Contemporary Art and Sound Studies. It is intended as a provocative attempt to grapple with the agency of sonic materiality via practice-led research.
In bypassing the usual lecture format where information is delivered to an audience by ‘an expert’, this event will involve a number of activities and discussions as an exploration of collective and non-traditional knowledge sharing. Taking the form of an hour-long (approx.) programme incorporating video, sound and performance, the attendees will be encouraged to participate using both spoken and non-verbal forms of articulation.
The event is intended to be of particular interest to anyone who is inquisitive about how philosophy might be exploited to inform art and how art might be used to ‘do’ philosophy.
As a group we will noisily make non-informed generalisations about some of the most complex theories of our time. Outcomes of this event will contribute to a continued development of (un)sound research methodology.

The ANTIUNIVERSITY NOW programme challenges academic and class hierarchy through an open invitation to teach and learn any subject, in any form, anywhere.
