Navigation - A Publication for a Place without a Historical Center, Created Continuously Anew in Meetings and Events That Occur in Empowered Spaces, Simultaneously
In this paperback, questions regarding how to navigate in the present are not raised to generate an answer, a method, or a map, but rather as framing principles analogous to those of a logbook. On a voyage, a ship’s crew registers surroundings and important events in a manner such as this. The cargo contained within this edition is an assemblage of materials provided by over 60 practitioners from a variety of professions and personal backgrounds, and is therefore heterogeneous in terms of language, form and content. The resulting narratives emerge across the pages in the trails left by individuals and collectives of human beings as they move, teach, learn and unlearn, traversing the various apparatuses that determine their agency. In this way, the term navigation is activated, implicitly and explicitly on myriad levels such as the biographical, historical, epistemological, technological and the aesthetical.
