Session 23, 24: Assemblies (with and without Barthes), and Tao Vrhovec Sambolec's musical concepts of space

In session 23, we will look at assembly structures, using the "Quick guide on group dynamics in people's assemblies", compiled by the Commission for Group Dynamics in Assemblies of the Puerta del Sol Protest Camp (Madrid), as a point of departure, and Barthes' essay "To the seminar" as a source for reflection. The Quick Guide can be downloaded here, and Barthes' text can be found here.

The text for session 24 is a short, but quite openly structured and wide ranging interview text of an e-mail interview I conducted with composer/artist Tao Vrhovec Sambolec last year. I choose this text as a starting point for reflections on the organization, and possible reconfiguration, of space: a topic that is coming up in certain discussions regarding the potential future development of the Occupy movement and its strategies. The text (which ended in mid-conversation) can be found here.
