Hidden Agency is a speculative hybrid entity set up by ∞OS team in the context of “Welt ohne Außen” exhibition at Martin Gropius Bau, where we will explore reciprocal relations between intellectual / ethical frameworks and collective embodied practices.
Every time a session facilitator will introduce their practice and various ways how it weaves into ∞OS, experimenting with a hybrid approach, merging the two practices together, observing the effects on the body, on the participants, and on the environment.

The methodology of ∞OS approach to learning is based on translating various theoretical frameworks into physical practice in order to learn through direct experience and to transfer knowledge between different domains. The collective body-based practice becomes a medium and a playground for experiential understanding of images, concepts and ideas.
Focusing on the experiential modes of the human body — body-based practice, somatosensory experience, and material manifestations of affect and its linguistic actualisations — we set up the Hidden Agency — a speculative hybrid entity between shadow organisation, summer training camp, and open space for physical experience.
Hidden Agency will become a place for exploring the abstract through physical exercise and corporeal experience, including the material/discursive intra-actions and studying the reciprocal connections between them.
