Precession: The Cynics is the latest event to be unveiled by culutral haven Temple Works.
PRECESSION is borrowed terminology from Physics.
It describes a changing point. A change in the orientation of the rotation axis of a rotating body. The motion of the axis of a spinning body, where there is an external force acting on the axis. Take from this what you will. In translation, this Event uses this idea to set/disturb a series for ideas, performance, poetry – an expression without stagnation.
THE CYNICS is less borrowed, more vital substanance & an ideology to stand by.
Cynicism originates from the ancient school of philosophers The Cynics, whom were defiant, unconventional,’of the world’, – the streets were their school. Their philosophy to virtuously align with nature as a purpose of life endeavours rejecting convention and conventional desire and values that conspires societal existence.
‘CYNIC’ deriving from the Greek word, meaning ‘dog-like’/’dog’, refering to The Cynics behaviour and choices. Once turned on its head – The Cynics as a friend remain open to finding error and barking correction, snapping at the public the truth and with the beliefs for a happy life, self-sufficency and freedom.
PRECESSION: THE CYNICS approaches Cynicism as a discontinuous, philisophical, cultural process and questions … What is it to be cynical today?
