Knowledge table/ Donatella Bernardi, Noémie Etienne, Nadia Radwan

A research project is generally, in a classical sense, a project, which tends to verify hypotheses by experience and experimentation. Eternal Tour defines itself as a research project that continuously evolves with experience, bringing together artists and academics. However, what are the different forms of knowledge today? Where and how is contemporary thought produced? Should it necessarily be translated in words? Can it be expressed by the body or by movement? In a roundtable inviting the public and all the participants of Eternal Tour, Donatella Bernardi, Noémie Etienne and Nadia Radwan propose a reflection on knowledge production and its involvement, as well as on the methodological fundaments of Eternal Tour during its 2010 edition in Jerusalem and Ramallah.
