Nongkrong and Non-Work: An Open Hangout and Dialogue

May 1, 2016
12:00pm  -  1:30pm

The process of hanging out, of groups of people occupying physical and social space, is inherently powerful. Operating in open-ended, temporary encounters, hanging out allows for the exchange of both conversations and those interactions which are more subtle, based upon energy and feeling between people. This non-workshop takes its cues from both the Indonesian practice of nongkrong (non-goal-oriented hanging out) and Fred Moten and Stephano Harney’s conceptualization of ‘study’ as an inherently radical, common intellectual practice manifesting in social space.
