We conceive these encounters as a series of thought provoking exercises to think with entities, objects, ideas, actions, events located at the edge of categories/states/conditions:


death/alive
organic/inorganic
real/fiction
material/immaterial
one/many
us/other
human/non-human
visible/invisible
perceptible/imperceptible
accounted/unaccounted
past/present/future
active/passive
biology/geology



We intend each of these encounters to work as sites to provoke a particular type of thinking-- the slash is the entity-- that forces us to reveal, and reckon with, questions such us: What kind of possibilities, promises, monsters, dangers--and in between-- are revealed by placing ourselves ‘at the edge’? What does thinking at ‘the edge’ offer to thought?

At a moment in which we witness the collapse of systems, and the practices and discourses that have sustained them--the master narrative of “growth” is an example--it is particularly important to create experimental spaces/slashes-- that invite the practice of thought  without  extant categories. We believe that “the edge” can be one experimental space, and “thinking at the edge” one of the practices to enable us to open the possibility of thinking and imagining beyond the categories and boundaries that hold us captive.
