DISCURSIVE CAMPING_dwelling on the move seeks to create momentary
situations in open spaces. It offers an off-road programme for everyone.
After arriving at a DISCURSIVE CAMPING site, dwelling on the move
unpacks and unfolds a setting between tents, carpets, camping furniture.
DISCURSIVE CAMPING spontaneously inter-acts with each specific site
where it takes place by collecting materials and opinions and by
presenting, discussing and dealing with projects (in video, audio,
paper or other formats) and ideas that are informed by the context
of the site. We will invite local groups as well as contributions
from other parts of the world. It works as a potluck, where everyone
is both guest and host at the same time. Together we will think,
drink, eat, speak, play and work within the contingent meteorological,
social, cultural etc. conditions and influences that may occur.
After a while things will be re-packed again and the caravan will
move on to the next stop on the tour.

practice and research. UNWETTER does this in a self-organised manner
and is engaged in a non-hierarchical practice, which values fluid
modes of artistic engagement.
Since 2002 UNWETTER has developed a varied and thriving practice
which includes the 'discursive picnic'; UNWETTER has been involved
in numerous projects and exhibited across Europe, including Serbia,
Germany, Norway, and Sweden.
