Potential topics include: theater,performance art, torture, outsourcing, anorexia, Israel, Palestine, Blackwater, the TCG, Charismatic Leadership, the Shock Doctrine, theater vs. performance, the exhibition as school, theanyspacewhatever, learning vs. “learning,” talking vs. “talking”, performing vs. acting, democracy vs. Authenticity. Totally Bitchen. Simone Weil (100 years). Seminar format. Participatory.
