Thinking Under Turbulence, Geneva Colloquium published by
CCC Research Master / HEAD Genève and Motto Books, 2017.

Thinking under Turbulence is conceived as a working-journal, as print- and online-version, in eleven sequences and one sequel. It brings together voices of closed seminars and public moments of one year Thinking under Turbulence: Geneva Colloquium which framed the 2015/16 transition of the CCC Research-Based Master Programme of the Visual Arts Department at the Haute école d’art et de design, HEAD – Genève. Thinking under turbulence operates in transgenerational time. It demands to question the dominance of one school of critique or one culture for taking collective positions. Thinking under turbulence departs and inscribes itself in our lived experiences as planetary subjects from which we must re-engineer our thinking. In other words, if there is “slow violence” (Rob Nixon) that inscribes itself across generations and geographies—often at thresholds of undetectability—then there must be slow revolution that stands with “revolutionary patience” as blogger and theorist Mark Fisher argued a year ago. More needs to be done.
