Talk: Advantages of Non-Intentionality

Conference: The Low End Theory
Date: Day 2 – 14:15
Location: E-Werk Kesselsaal, Weimar
Language: German

Probably, Mr. Piller will miss the topic. His artistic practice can be described as haphazard, unfocused, impulsive and personally motivated. His talk will mainly deal with what can be discovered on one’s doorstep, why it is advisable to always take detours, to evade thinking while (not after) working, to go astray on purpose, to let time pass, to ask other for advice but decide for oneself, to take over on-call service duties and to continue to read novels.
