by physical metaphors, imaged by staring eyes, individuated by groups,

moved by Kafka's words. The graduating participants of AMCh present

outcomes from their research on dynamic relationships between language,

body, image and states of consciousness.

On Saturday, the

audience is warmly invited to attend a full day program combining the

presentations together with additional reflections, including lectures

from Gawie Keyser and Nastja Säde Rönkkö.

Gourmet catering will be provided, during a break between the afternoon and evening presentations on Saturday.

Please reserve in advance for this special event.
Day program reservations will help the caterer plan the menu accordingly.
