DARE 2017: Aberrant Nuptials (2nd International Conference on Deleuze and Artistic Research)
20-22 November 2017
Call for Proposals (deadline : 9 january)
“To become is never to imitate, nor to ‘do like’, nor to conform to a model, whether it is of justice or of truth. There is no terminus from which you set out, none which you arrive at or which you ought to arrive at. Nor are there two terms which are exchanged. The question ‘What are you becoming?’ is particularly stupid. For as someone becomes, what he is becoming changes as much as he does himself. Becomings are not phenomena of imitation or assimilation, but of a double capture, of non-parallel evolution, of nuptials between two reigns. Nuptials are always against nature. Nuptials are the opposite of a couple. There are no longer binary machines: question-answer, masculine-feminine, man-animal, etc. This could be what a conversation is - simply the outline of a becoming. The wasp and the orchid provide the example.” — Gilles Deleuze and Claire Parnet
DARE 2017 invites artists, composers, performers, scholars, and all artist-researchers to appropriate, challenge, and expand Deleuzean perspectives within artistic research, problematising Deleuze's world through artistic practices and for concrete acts of creation. The conference welcomes both artistic presentations and scholarly papers, giving special attention to artistic research in music. Proposals will be selected by the conference Editorial Board in a two-stage peer-review.
