Spinoza’s ideas explained by Antoni Negri, about the questions of contingency, of the possible and of praxis, to produce a science of contingency and possibility seem today more urgent than ever. is not a coincidence that Negri, has been involved in such studies around Spinoza’s legacy, as also is Rosi Braidotti, the great thinker of Nomadism, who finds in Spinoza’s idea of conatus, the tool to cope and intervene on our present towards another future, with a positivist liberating force.

Esther Planas / Escuela de Calor Barcelona January 2016

We are pleased to announce that Eme3 have involved tutors Coque Claret and Dani Calatayud at ETSAV/UPC and its director Victor Seguí, for our 10th edition of the festival, who in turn has invited us for our Eme3_2016 outdoors summer lab, that would be based at the campus for a tent making series of workshops.

Over the last year, we have been preoccupied with the issues around contingency, of tents and refuge making. We found out, between all of us involved, a will to make of such, a collective participatory shared experience, that will happen over an intensive four days summer campus lab, where we all have to deploy our tools and knowledge in to a praxis, in to a making possible.

Our point of departure was the research by Escuela de Calor on her stay at our first summer camp site residence: Eme3 On Residence.

Here is the blog and a text that synthesise what we think contains essential questions we want you to ask yourselves for this time with us on the summer camp at ETSAV.

The core of the research will be concerned on how to make, or improvise a Camp Tent Prototype and the various uses we could have of it.

This will be the first part of a process that later will be showcased and contested on the second phase of the festival in Nov 2016 at COAC.
