Discussion event.

Traditionally associated with a forest, a clearing is a space in which there is a potent relationship between our senses and surroundings in which we both feel our being fully and become aware of ideas and things beyond it. Martin Heidegger invoked the metaphor of the clearing to explain how presence is shaped by what is absent or concealed: what we value expresses both potential and limits.

As part of London’s ‘This is Not a Gateway’ interdisciplinary festival on cities, ‘The Clearing’ brings together a group of artists, curators and archivists to consider how do installation art, performance and insights into archival practice draw attention to the interplay of forces that shape social space. How does sensitivity to the aesthetics of place, and the dynamics of knowledge open up values and beliefs of what it makes sense to do in the city?
