Contact details:
PSi Future Advisory Board (FAB);

Structure and Schedule: Performances, seminars, and workshops from 1-7 July 2018

The PSi Future Advisory Board calls for applications to PSi’s second summer school to coincide with PSi #24 in Daegu, South Korea. PSi Summer School #1.5 will bring together scholars, artists, and activists over the course of seven days and in an intensive series of activities directed at thinking through, working with, and creating anew pressing issues and rising trends in performance studies. We propose the interval ‘1.5’ in the title as a gesture to the temporality in which the summer school happens, in between conferences, but also, and perhaps more centrally, to the fertility of the unfinished, the incomplete, and the “not-yet here” (Muñoz 2009). This edition will therefore take the themes of Overflow (PSi #23 Hamburg) and Network (PSi #24 Daegu) as the frame for our discussions. Further details will be available in the coming months. Please direct inquiries and interest to PSi Future Advisory Board:
