Tecnoshamanism Meeting in Berlin II
17. July 2016 @ 14:00 - 23:00
We are organizing the II Technoshamanism Meeting in Berlin!!!
Do you remember the first one? Here it is: https://tecnoxamanismo.wordpress.com/2016/02/25/archives-of-technoshamanism-meeting-berlin2016/…
Once again, we are calling all the cyborgs, witches, heretics, technoshamans, programmers, hackers, artists, alchemists, thinkers and everyone who might be curious to gather on sunday July 17, from 14:00 to midnight, in order to create discussions and practices regarding technoshamanism, thus strenghtening our newly started community in Berlin.
This time, it will be a little different then the first one. The event will happen in one single day and the purposed subject which will form the basis of the activities will be: II INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF TECNOSHAMANISM – here’s the open call:
WHAT IS THIS FESTIVAL?
In April/2014 we did the I INTERNACIONAL TECNOSHAMANISM FESTIVAL in Arraial d’Ajuda in the south of Bahia/Brazil, in a permaculture and agroforestry site (Itapeco), in the vicinity of the Pataxó indigenous people. You can see it here: https://tecnoxamanismo.wordpress.com/2016/02/16/primeiro-festival-internacional-de-tecnoxamanismo/
It was an incredible meeting with so many interesting projects, and with the incisive participation of indigenous group Pataxo of “Aldeia Velha”. Two years after, a different Pataxo community invited us to make the II International Festival inside of their community: Aldeia Para, the Mother community of Pataxo people. It will happend in Caraiva, Aldeia Para in one of the most beautiful and rustic villages in southern Bahia.
To see some videos of the indigenous pataxos talking about the festival, here:
WHY THIS II MEETING IN BERLIN?
We want to take the opportunity of our stay in Berlin to make the II meeting to in order to strengthen the network and introduce the theme of the II Festival, that is “resistance and networks in the anthropocene”. We will follow the principles of technoshamanism, which aims to connect new technologies with ancestral ones in order to repair the historical division between the two kinds of knowledge. Technoshamanism intends to create new inputs for unorthodox ways of thinking regarding the development of free technology.
We know that there are so many interesting projects going on in the DIY scene in Berlin dealing with matter, alterity, interespecifics, psychogeophisics, transcultural, body and so on. We want to aproximate these practices with the technoshamanism enviroment.
We have here some ideas:
1- What is the relationship between Hidden Services and the practices of revelation?
2- What is the connection between matter transformation and subjective transformation?
3- Is it possible to picturean ancesterfuturism without linearity?
4- What means make diy rituals or free cosmogony in a city so transcultural as Berlin?
All kind of practices in free technologies are in our view fundamental – landscape, body knowledge, electronics, healing rituals…
In the afternoon we will make various radio debates, workshops and after 21 pm we will make a technoshamanistic ritual in the basement. (it is not hot inside).
– You know, we do it for free, just because we want and can!!
The program is still open!!
If you want to take part in this intense day, you are wellcome.

Fabiane M. Borges (Brazil) invite participants to experience a number of transnarratives and intertextual techniques to produce a fiction whose elements will underlie the DIY ritual. This is one way to prepare an immersive ritual from a collective process.

Documentation of the process:
Obs: 1) The interested needs make registration by email catadores[@]gmail.com;

3) It is important for us to collaborate with all people and groups who want to work in the ritual.
Performing Languages: use of body techniques, improvisation scene , building individual and collective actions from auto-biographical studies , building expressive languages , ritualization , gestualization , states of presence, among others.
Noisecracy: use of techniques of sound language , noise production ( digital and analog) , vocalization, narrative improvisation , building collective states of listening . Understanding the noise and disruption of communication beyond intelligibility: emission – redundancy – reception. The idea here is to build languages which exist between humans and other species .
Fictional narratives: fictionalization, development of collective writing transnarrative characters, character development, environments, contexts. Interescritures, cosmogonical production, mythical, metaphysical, several ontologies, treaties, free association writing.
