I don’t understand you. Toni Crabb


Schedule: August 25, 26 and 29
11:00-13:00 and 17:00-20:00

A group of, say, 10 people are sitting around a model. They are drawing her. When the model looks at the drawings, how many people will she see?

I don’t understand you takes up on the Bulegoa z/b Glosario, in particular, on the idea of a common content being interpreted from different places.

As well as considering specific content, the proposal seeks to unfold and explore the actual process of interpreting – to play with the possibilities of interpretation for unforming and forming meanings: for shifting, breaking or collapsing them, branching them out, particularising them, creating contexts around them, masking, revealing or destroying them; for carrying meanings away from their origin and taking them back to it familiar or foreign.

As a vehicle for interpreting, I don’t understand you will use scores. The three-day intervention will begin with a proposal by Toni Crabb, followed by a second part in which the public attending the intervention will be invited to decide on a set of content, create scores around it, and interpret other scores of their choice. Ideally, this proposal would include participants from as many different areas of knowledge as possible.

To take part in the activity, which will take place on August 25, 26 and 29 from 11:00 to 13:00 and 17:00 to 20:00, please contact bulegoa@bulegoa.org
