It’s the last TEOK of the year! We come to the end of an eventful 2016 with two messages of fear and hope, condensed into a single TEOK session that will take us from the depths of the internet to the hills of the Greek countryside.

#XXVIII.1 – EAT DIRT: Un-recoverability and Counter-productivity
Against hegemony, and against those forces that play purposefully, even joyfully, with the extraction, recovery and discard of novelty, true innovation and susceptivity, we can only create in reverse. It is in the dirt that seeds are supposed to sprout and grow anew. We consider here, this night, what it might mean then to EAT DIRT.
#XXVIII.2 – As flexible as jelly. Some thoughts on regenerative phenomena
"In analogy to the life cycle of the “immortal jellyfish” – known as Turritopsis dohrnii, the only known living organism that does not die, unless by external force – a line of questioning focuses on the endless loop, on the concept of “limited and limitless,” but also on its relationship to contemporary social uprisings and possible strategies to shift the ratio of power towards the creation of new universes of meaning, potentially infinite too.“
#XXVIII.3 – No president left behind, or a very scientific guide to resistance
In a time of uncertainty about the impact single events, such as an election, can have on all our lives and our planet,
we’ll explore a story nature has shared with us to hint at a beautiful path leading to the next level of human resilience.
Stay tuned to your mails soon!
#25.1 – Les totem de l'atome
While talking about nuclear power, we will find phallus and testicles on china plates.
#25.2 – Instagram Phrenology
An enormous online community has developed around the alteration of facial geometry for a screen-mediated gaze. Through the application of specially-coloured or light-refracting powders, gels, creams, and liquids, these “pixelastic surgeons” are reinventing how notions of beauty circulate, evolve, and assimilate previously subcultural or subversive practices into the mainstream.
A série chega a Lisboa na próxima terça-feira, 11 de Outubro, com um evento de lançamento especial inserido na programação da Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa. Convidado pela revista Cartha, o TEOK apresenta-se pela primeira vez na Mãe d'Água de Lisboa, com duas apresentações centradas no tema PARALELO. Juntem-se a nós na sessão inaugural do TEOK Lisboa – esperamos ver-vos lá!
Thanks to Cartha, and the TEOK Lisboa team!
