We invite you to address in a 20 minute presentation questions of cultural and experiential atmospheres, technification and affect. For instance, what are the roles of emotion and imagination in the context of lapses in ideals of subject integrity and the immersion in affective states? What is the role, politically, culturally, creatively, of felt or non-conscious states and excesses of affect in the context of late capital? What does being moved mean historically and in contemporary senses for thinking design practices spanning cities, architecture, scenography, interiors, objects?
