LSAAP transforms itself!

LSAAP (Laboratory of Somatics for Architecture and Landscape) is the place of somatic experimentation within our platform. It is also where we train in Somatics applied to Architecture and Landscape.

For the last 6 years, LSAAP has provided university training through the figure of an University Own Degree. Now, our laboratory advances in a manifesto about how to learn and research and about the places that nowadays facilitate the most innovative way of learning and sharing knowledge.

The structure we propose for our training from now on is one of “micro-credentials”, that is, a collection of happenings sustained over time, which you can attend whenever it suits you. Each time you attend one of them, you will be adding hours of our laboratory and we will recognize you for it.

The purpose is to continue to strengthen and expand the community around LSAAP, which in recent years has grown by adding incredible people. Through these happenings we will create the possibility for you to configure the composition of this training and your research. You will be able to link them or not in a continuous way according to your criteria, they will be in different geographies and associated or not to different institutions. Some will require registration and others will be subsidised.

LSAAP will develop freely over time in museums, beaches, open spaces, theatres, wherever we wish, we will meet there.

The first of these events took place in Nicosia, Cyprus on December the 5th (2021). It was held at the Dancehouse Lefkosia under the name “SKIN”.

The second one “FLESH” (Inter-species Flesh) took place on February the 24th (2022) at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid within the study group “Conjugar Mundos: Corporalidades Multiespecies” directed by Fernando Quesada. Information is available here.

The third one “DUST” was developed in Vienna in between May the 4th and 6th. You can visit this happening here.

We will be looking forward to host you in our next events. Check below our calendar.

Micro-credentials structure:

Each happening will have a duration of 3h.

Every 4 happenings you will have the recognition of a segment of our training. (12h)

The complete training is 4 segments (48h).

If you already have one of the labs we did at the university, you will only need 2 segments to complete our training.

Once you have completed the training, we would love you to be part of the happennings network by proposing sessions that we will support and disseminate from our platform and that will be valid within our system of micro-credentials.

If you already have the Own Degree in Somatics applied to Architecture and Landscape you can start proposing a session to us, anywhere in the world. The main objective of the system is to increase, strengthen and take care of this international community that we already have and that allows us to learn so much.

Do you dare to go to the ends of the flesh?

To the frontiers of our actions where the hidden imaginaries reside?
