The idea of crisis seems the dominant metaphor for describing the state of contemporary societies and is often used to warn against progress and change. Crisis though, also signifies transformation, a system in crisis is on the verge of collapsing and only in this collapse the new can evolve. As the various crisis – the climate crisis, the financial crisis, the culture crisis – converge, a transition evolves. It is these transitions that SYNSMASKINEN is intended to explore. How can the transformation of societies be percieved; what kind of visions can be glimpsed at the other side of crisis?

Join us for Open Forum and SYNSMASKINEN. A new performance-group and an inquiry into 7 fields of contemporary political crisis. The event will consist of 7 performative projects, each exploring a certain aspect of contemporary crisis. Together these 7 visions will attempt to unfold a contemporary cosmology; a new political horizon. This performance-lecture is an attempt at detecting the obstacles ahead.
