MAD THEORY: A Performance Philosophy Symposium
Saturday, April 12th, 9:30am – 6:30pm
Madison Public Library Central Branch, Room 301
From an audio/noise performance theorizing queer stammers and the glitch to a relational, food-based aesthetic gesture; from a trans-digital methodology of the handmade to a performative investigation of race in visual culture; from experimental theory videos to collaborative digital poetics; from philosophy of body modification to exploration of library literacy programs, MAD THEORY features a stunning range of interdisciplinary work!
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC / NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
MAD THEORY is an experimental and dynamic time and space to demonstrate and discuss exciting new work. The symposium will feature diverse approaches to performance and philosophy: lecture performances, experimental talks, live art, interactive installations, roundtable discussions, durational work, and hybrid theory-practice sessions.
Featuring a keynote presentation by Fusion Science Theater.
This event is presented by the Madison Performance Philosophy Collective with generous support from A.W. Mellon Workshop on Art and Scholarship, Center for the Humanities, The Bubbler at Madison Public Library, and Performance Philosophy.
