    3. If Can’t Dance’s field of research for Edition IV is the notion of affect, which can be read in the light of our continuing investigations into the construction of subjectivity and the politics of identity. Our interest in affect illuminates and intensifies our projects, allowing for connections to be made where relevant.

      The programme takes place in the context of If I Can’t Dance’s contribution to Alternativa, the international contemporary visual art festival that aims to investigate the ways in which contemporary art intersects with the political.

      The commissioned works are developed in collaboration with our current partner organisations M HKA in Antwerp, Site Gallery in Sheffield, Tate Modern in London, Veemtheater in Amsterdam, and Wyspa Institute of Art in Gdansk.
