Right now we are thrown around in an accelerating change process, whose horizon we probably can barely glimpse the contours of yet. We just know it gets wild. It's already wild!
Spine and Spatiality
On this evening, Rane Willerslev will, in the usual entertaining and sharp way, describe from two core concepts what he thinks is needed for us to come wholeheartedly through a dissolution time, where old forms must constantly be rethought.
According to Rane, it must be based on solid, profound professionalism. SPINE. But also with a willingness as a society to meet the world with space and a willingness to let its world collapse in the meeting.
Or as he himself expresses it, daring and more ass in the pants should be a great part of a new concept of formation.
"And then we sometimes have to move out where we really don't know
if we can bottom. For the hell, it's at the end of the jetty
One, it happens. The road out there is important, but it is just the prelude.
It is the plunge into the depths that is the redemption. "
