OuUnPo goes to Germany

All the Worlds that you Word..

Reading, listening and speaking sessions by artists Mounira Al Solh and Lawrence Abu Hamdan.
All the Worlds that You Word... is the closing act of Quantum Fluctuations in a Synecdochic Universe -  at ZKM Center for Arts and Media Karlsruhe, January 18, 2014

As a response to the ZKM exhibition Global Activism, OuUnPo has invited Mounira Al Solh and Lawrence Abu Hamdan to enact and perform two ongoing research projects that poke and investigate the liaisons between language and power.

Mounira Al Solh will present her NOA (not only arabic) magazine. NOA, whose third issue is currently in the making, is a series of collaborative and performative gestures recollected under printed form. Addressing sensitive subjects such as “Treason” (1st issue) and “Arrest” (2nd issue), NOA can normally only be viewed and read individually by arranging an appointment with the artist. For the event at the ZKM though the artist will arrange a special reading of NOA for the first time. The magazine becomes thus a tem- porary object-shape, which is not definitive and enclosed but acts as a further trigger for a dialogic and performative dimension with the reader.

On August 20, Ouunponian Stephen Whitmarsh received his PhD in neuroscience from the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, on the thesis titled "Metacognition and Nonreactivity in Mindfulness". His work was done at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging under the supervision of Prof. H. P. Barendregt and Prof. O. Jensen.

In his laudatio speech, Prof. Jensen remarked on the demand in science "to try to think outside of the box". To which he added that "Stephen was never inside of the box in the first place". In that context, Prof. Jensen mentioned Ouunpo's aim and activities and Stephen's recent performance at Spiral, Tokyo.

The beautiful illustration and design of the thesis cover (Donders Series nr. 120, ISBN 978-94-91027-62-8) was done by Ouunponian Elena Nemkova.
