Annika Larsson presents at Index a two-day seminar, Non-Knowledge, Laughter & The Moving Image, examining the moving image and the (human and non-human) laughing body’s potential to overturn our habitual course and change the dominant order of things. Larsson uses laughter as an example, how it can suddenly invade a moment and set one off course.
The project explores ways in which we, organisms, bodies, technologies and environments, communicate beyond instrumental language, subjectivity and reason, in order to demonstrate what moving images and bodies can do and how they can teach us about the limits of our thinking.
