Provocations @ MOCO 2018

The Provocations Project was launched in 2018 at the Conference on Movement and Computing (MOCO) in Genoa, Italy. This initial iteration of the Provocations Project involved an open call for provocations in response to the prompt: what escapes computation in interactive performance? In addition, eight ‘provocateurs’ were invited to take part in a Panel Discussion. This site archives the presence of the Provocations Project at MOCO 2018, as one iteration of the ongoing Provocations Project

This call for provocations from 2018 remains open, and new provocations are posted on a rolling basis! You can browse the full collection of provocations, and SUBMIT A PROVOCATION here:

Iterating on provocations @ SloMOCO 2021 – Get involved!

Presently, as part this year’s extended (Slo) format of MOCO 2021, Teoma Naccarato, John MacCallum, and Jessica Rajko are facilitating a series of events to revisit the entirety of the Provocations Project, to fold it back on itself, produce provocations upon provocations, and generate new questions and spaces for dialogue.

The Provocations Project is ongoing, with many iterations to come!

In its multiple manifestations, the Provocations Project serves as a distributed platform for critical inquiry and exchange within cross-disciplinary and collaborative practices related to movement, music, and computing. Visit the main project site to explore the growing collections of provocations:
