Party Studies – Vol. 1 – Home gatherings, flat events, festive pedagogy and refiguring the hangover
First volume of a collective publication devoted to the analysis of the party, in all the complexity of its social dimensions and implications.
From social get-together to scenes of delirium, the publication aims to unpack the party as a complex, vertiginous construct that provides a dynamic view onto questions of community. If the party functions as an intensification of togetherness, what lessons might it provide in negotiating a given social order?
The publication is the first in a series developed in parallel to a set of party-workshops held in different locations in Madrid, each of which performatively investigates states of partying, posing the party as a scene of creative study.
