CRIP_sessions

CRIP_sessions (Critical Research In Process) are a series of discursive interventions organized by c.off. CRIP_sessions departs from c.off’s recent projects and publications, and further investigates and disseminates notions of ability, movement and language. In each CRIP_session a specific, but intertwined theme is approached. In turn, we devote ourselves to a critical search for in-between places, in which notions of (dis)abilities and alikeness posed by the norm are investigated, discussed and re-considered.
