Non-knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image is an artistic research project led by Annika Larsson. The project examines the moving image and the body’s capacity for new and alternative modes of thinking, acting and being, and their potential to change our habitual course and turn around the order of things. It looks into situations in where bodies, images and sounds speak through unstable and unforeseen movements and encounters. Like the sudden invasion of laughter that for a moment sets us off course, it explores ways in which we, organisms, bodies, technologies and environments communicate beyond instrumental language, subjectivity and reason, to experience what moving images and bodies can do and how they can teach us about the limits of our thinking.
As part of the project, various online and offline events have taken place, such as a lecture series at HFBK Hamburg or an online symposium. For these events, various posters and foldout readers as well as a poster series were designed, alongside the website nonknowledge.org, programmed by Fritz Laszlo Weber.
