Artists are increasingly confronted with the inability to work continuously in a fragmented and (over)productive world, where numbers are at the forefront: the number of successful performances, the number of spectators, the number of awards, and so on. The second symposium presents reflections and initiatives that address various action strategies, first, in the body (soma) and then through working, networking and sociopolitical thinking.

Invited experts and artists from Ljubljana, Maribor, Zagreb and Budapest will present different aspects and views on the concept of continuity through the body, experience, practice in the form of lectures and diverse art events (talks, dance installations and tuning spaces).
