Our first “LOVE! INSPIRATION! INNOVATION!” lecture period in Helsinki, Finland is over now and it’s time to concentrate on the post-production activities for a moment. The impact that our lecture performance had on the spectators was bigger and, it seems, more effective than we had thought in our wildest dreams!
We based our lecture performance on the teachings of the American philosopher and economist Alexander Chamberlain (b. 1938); our main goal was to encourage our spectators to reflect on the ever-increasing demand for flexibility, increasing efficiency and productization of the creative potential in each and every individual that today’s European market-driven “creative economy” imposes on all of us. What are the values that I adhere to? What does it mean to be a “good worker”? Is it OK if all areas of my life are taken into the logic of “creative economy” and treated primarily as capacities for producing marketable innovations?
Due to dramaturgical and strategic reasons, I cannot reveal more details of the project at this point. We are planning a “LOVE! INSPIRATION! INNOVATION!” European tour to Vienna and Madrid later on and do indeed hope that you will come and see for yourself!! 🙂
We will soon post here the English translation of a magazine article about our project, published in the Finnish AINO magazine.
I would like to take the opportunity and thank everyone in the Helsinki production team — we did a great job!! And there will be more to follow…
