Disobedient Silences - Part of 'Agency Without Intention' Exhibition
Theater by Rosana Antoli Performer Intentionality is bound up with individualism -- Mieke Bal. One can have a goal but be in no condition to achieve it. Yet, can one gain agency yet avoid intentionality? Through four different projects this exhibition explores the apparent contingent relation between actions and purposes in four arenas: the technological, the aesthetic, the political, and the social.
