Night Audition opens up a playful way of approaching the decolonial claim to opacity and incomprehensibility. The writer, theorist and philosopher Édouard Glissant, reference point for Gods Moving in Places, defends this right to opacity. Is everyone able to lay claim to this right? How do you sense a relation to art works without the intention of “understanding” them?

In the workshop, students of the HBK Braunschweig invite you to experiment on this “right to opacity” in the exhibition space. By thought practices, readings, sketches and movement, participants will be given the opportunity to investigate the exhibition – both individually and collectively – and stirr up the spaces of Gods Moving in Places by their associations and voices…

Relation contaminates, sweetens, as a principle, or as flower dust.

Édouard Glissant
