Affective Dynamics Study Group

Dylan Spencer-Davidson
2020

Affective Dynamics Study Group is a collective devoted to 'study' in the Motenian sense, examining issues around interpersonal relations, non-violent communication, vulnerability, complicity and new ways of being and living together. Part consciousness-raising experiential group, part never-ending rehearsal, the collective meets to perform a series of experimental exercises together, borrowed from the fields of somatics, group therapy, activism, and movement practices. The video is based on footage from the study session and interviews with the participants.

About the artist:
Dylan Spencer-Davidson (USA/UK/CH) is an artist, performer and educator based in Berlin, DE. His practice spans performance, workshops, video, sound and writing and continually orbits around the question: how to be together? Challenging normative, violent forms of relation, his works hold space for collective emotional processing, while proposing alternative forms of communication and collaboration that are rooted in listening, consent, embodiment, difference, and vulnerability.
