Phoebe Osborne (United States) opens the discussion around the concept of intentional flaking—opposing the idea of social commitment to productivity as a way to resist capitalist oppression.

Flaking becomes a series of collective actions that entangles scores of movement and hanging out to propitiate kinship and connections to others as a fundamental part of survival.

FLAKING was originally presented at the Open Studios event of the MFA Columbia University at Prentis Hall, Harlem, New York on November 12th 2017.

Other presentations:

>TEASE - A night of loose performance and video

11th of December 2017, Prentis Hall, Harlem, New York

>BODILY -  MA Curatorial Practice of the School for Visual Arts

A piece by Phoebe Osborne, performed by Charlie Laban Trier, Talya Epstein & Andreas Hannes. Sound by Kristine Eudey.
