Ralf Richardt Strøbech: Return of investment – on the ecology of work and thought

Link to recording of lecture

The Danish National School of Performing Arts

The concept of originality runs deep in contemporary artistic practice. This has a couple of side effects that are somewhat less than optimal, the primary being that an enormous amount of work and thinking is done for no apparent reason and with no discernible outcome.

In this lecture we will explore the origins of this thinking a bit further, with the primary goal of finding fruitful ways of being more efficient without being less artistic.
