The Sensing Salon: Experiments in Entangled Existence *** 11-16 June 2023 @ PAF

The Sensing Salon studies tools of the healing arts towards expanding existing ideas of art and aesthetics. By experimenting with knowing at the connection between thinking and feeling, in this studio we share tools and practices that make it possible to return healing to its place among the daily restorative activities, such as eating, sleeping, resting, etc.


The Mattress is an ongoing experiment intended to throw off the status quo of a dominant white presence at PAF—that is, to change the course of an otherwise Eurocentripetal spiral.

ELSEWHERE & OTHERWISE 10: PLAYING MULTITUDES guts / metabolising / futures

******* all bodies possible and welcome *******

once a year we live together…

…and it has been 10 years, wow! A moment, to take a breath, look at our amalgamations, allow ourselves to play with what is here, feel into what the collective mood is, understand the various forms of collaborative powers that have been built, grieve, celebrate and metabolise them into possible futures.

For this years spring* meeting, taking place 17 – 22 May 2023, we turn our attention to the form art takes and the techniques and techne within and between works of art. In this way we extend our ongoing conversation around the subject(s) of art with a turn towards the object in its making, impossible or otherwise.
