About The Festival :
Economy Of Resistance – Global Society In Transformation
Transformation has a long and varied history rooted in political movements and economic happenings, but it means different things to different people. Artists, activists, economists, and journalists all have a different take on the subject. We know of so many transformations and we may not even know how societies transform, but that’s okay.
Unframed festival came into existence to provide a platform for debate and foster genuine exchange. Maybe you’ll leave with more questions than answers and maybe not. It’s all up to you!
Le Camion Sauna at Unframed :
Share the Heat ! The Sauna Truck „Le camion Sauna“ comes to you, brings you the luxury of feeling well and to share a moment with people in the simplest way : no clock, no mobile phone, no need for efficiency, just Heat, Cold water and Steam.
Beside the relaxing aspect of Sauna, for the Unframed Festival we will try to explore the possibilities of using a Sauna as a Medium for better substantial communications.
Traditionally, Sauna has often been used in Finland as a way to take important political decisions. In a speech in Tokyo, in Mai 2010 Pertti Torstila (Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland – Finland) explained “Decisions and negotiations take less time in the high heat. Sauna cools down overexcitement and melts away political differences.”
In theory, an intensive, passionate and critical discussion can be leaded by everyone, and everyone can take part of the discussion. Practically, some patterns, hierarchy and power mechanisms play a big part in this process, and Quick witted (Schlagfertig) persons with strong body language are self-designed as taking over a leading position in debates.
The experiment will be easy. We will select a pool of controversial discussion topics we want to discuss in the Sauna, and we will offer the possibility to have a passionate debate without overcooking and even allow the „Leadership mechanism“ to take place : The Sauna is a reduced and soft lighted room, where people can seat and share the same physical environment, they only belonging they bring into the sauna is a towel, a naked body and a creative mind. After some Minutes the discussion has to stop to cool down, this offers to everybody the luxury of thinking about the topic silently, to find some new ideas to raise the debates, to process the ideas other people had, and even maybe to change own mind considering the reality and the talk beside. After the „cooling down break“, people meet in the sauna again and resume the discussion.
We are not here to convince, we are here to give our mind the possibility to change, without loosing the ideals we are convinced by, it’s not about winning and loosing, it’s about changing.
Are you ready for this ?!
