The Great Arousal: Social Meeting and Introduction of the Project
/ Presentation by Raúl Hott + DJ set by Noff
I am inviting you to the first presentation and social meeting of the project The Great Arousal. On this occasion, we will detail the series of activities that will take place during the summer, workshops, and the official event for the month of September, which inaugurates a new stage of the project.
A first campaign of posters was launched at the beginning of January on the streets of Athens; an invitation to occupy the rooftops of the buildings of Athens, to explore new forms of love and desire. This erotic celebration and conscious practice seeks to re-connect bodies with the joy and reclaim pleasure in an individual and collective manner. The project aims to connect participants with their own life force.
Why do this on a rooftop and not in another place? Which is the potentiality of the rooftops? Why think about joy in 2018? Why think about pleasure in 2018? How to develop new strategies for joy? What does loving mean in the capitalocene? How can we investigate and propose new conceptions of desire that escape from the pre-existing notions imposed on us by capitalism? How can we construct a new desire associated with affectivity and awareness, together? Is sexual healing an evolutionary component of a post-human vision?
Do you want to support and participate in the project?
The meeting will be on Friday the 20th of July at 7 pm at Beton 7 in Pydnas 7, Athens.
