Book launch ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing by Philippine Hoegen

On 30 January 2020, during Bâtard Festival in Brussels, the new publication of Philippine Hoegen ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing will be launched.

ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing approaches performance as a method of producing different versions of the self. It explores technologies and processes used to produce such versions, and asks the question of how to understand the self within this multiplicity. In doing so, performance and performative strategies are applied as ways of thinking through the physical. ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing has been realised within the framework of a practiced based research project at the Centre of Applied Research for Art, Design and Technology (Caradt), at Avans University of Applied Sciences.

Program 30 January 2020

15.00 h: Workshop Philippine Hoegen – Activating Another Version / Red Hall BEURSSCHOUWBURG, Brussels (open to the public, with students from the Master Institute of Visual Cultures, ‘s-Hertogenbosch)
20.00 h: Booklaunch Another Version / BEURSSCHOUWBURG / Brussels


In the workshop Philippine Hoegen introduces participants to the methodology of performative versioning as outlined in her publication ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing. The publication consists of a series of cahiers containing texts, scores and images, and is intended to function as a working tool. During the workshop, questions brought forward by participants will be worked on collectively and individually, using the proposals, scores and reflections assembled in the publication. This workshop is an invitation to understand and use performative practice as a mode of active research, and to explore the notion of versions of the self, so as to look around corners and stretch the gaze through which a research question or problem can be regarded.

The workshop is free but holds a maximum capacity of participants. You can reserve a spot via

Launch Another Version

ANOTHER VERSION: Thinking Through Performing comprises 7 cahiers and contains games, scores, short stories, images, quotes and reflections that are often products of collaborative practices. Each cahier opens up a particular territory or lens, indicated through its title: cahier I Multiplicators, cahier II Pandiculators, cahier III Arena, cahier IV Objectaffilia, cahier V Animalities and cahier VI Ledger. The content of each cahier is structured into eight categories: CONVERSATION, IMAGE AS SCORE, NOTES, QUOTE, REFERENCE TEXT, REPORT, SCORE and SHORT STORY. These can be used as the reader/user sees fit, a story, an image or a quote can be used as a score, a score can be reversed or a reflection can be cut up and transformed into a new text.

Cahier 0 reflects and expands on the content of the publication and the research from which it springs. It contains a conversation Multiplicity, Multiplicators and the Supermarket Score between Philippine Hoegen and Sebastian Olma, and an essay Ecstatic Methods — Seven Vectors Addressed to Philippine Hoegen by Kristien Van den Brande.

The book Another Version: Thinking Through Performing can be ordered at Onomatopeearrow later this month.

Research Group: Cultural and Creative Industries

The research group Cultural and Creative Industries investigates the role of artists and designers as creative innovators and drivers of social and economic change. Affiliated researchers analyse the cultural and creative industries from a critical point of view and examine the conditions under which timely forms of aesthetic expression and social connectedness can actually take place within the precarious reality of this field. What economic models are required by artists and designers to create a meaningful practice within the aesthetic, social, and economic intentions of the cultural and creative industries? What skills sets are required for those artists and designers who don’t just want to follow movements, but actually shape novel social and economic models of the future?
