Formless Formation: A CONVERSATION WITH SANDRA RUIZ & HYPATIA VOURLOUMIS | Oct. 20th

Formless Formation: Vignettes for the End of this World is an experimental project conceived and co-authored by performance theorists—both NYU Performance Studies graduates—working in critical aesthetics and political thought. The book is an insurgent revolt, walking side by side with plural and planetary anticolonial forces organizing against debt, expropriative extractive capital, environmental catastrophe, and the militarized policing of people and borders. It is in direct conversation with all Indigenous, Black, Brown, ecological, feminist, queer, diasporic movements and struggles countering capitalist predatory formations across time and space. Through shared resonances across differing aesthetic-life-worlds and solidarities that bypass the nation-state, Ruiz and Vourloumis bring to the forefront performative and aesthetic practices and methods that address current and future social organizing.
