The Research Centre for Arts, Autonomy and Public Sphere presents a gathering around the subject ‘How to become generous’ by Ruth Benschop.

The Maastricht style of artistic research that the Research Centre for Arts, Autonomy and the Public Sphere practices, is characterized by wild, generous, rigorous methods-in-the- making. We seek to research with, in radically collaborative ways. Ruth Benschop is interested in the question: How do we learn to become such generous research instruments? And what traditions of thought helps us to situate and develop these practices? In this meeting, Ruth invites you to a close reading session to explore these issues with her.

During the meeting, we will close-read and discuss the article ‘Responding Bodies and Partial Affinities in Human–Animal Worlds’ by Vinciane Despret. Ruth recommends reading this interview with the author beforehand.

Looking forward to seeing you on 16 November 15:00 – 17:00. 

Please let know if you are planning to attend so she can send you the Teams link.
