1 Languages of Emotion
A Shadow Carousel with Scholarly Showpeople


Photos: Thomas Aurin

For two years, the research association “Languages of Emotion” has been plumbing the connections between emotions and signaling practices, bundling scientific competences from more than 20 disciplines in the humanities and natural sciences, each with its own traditions of thinking about emotions. For the last 20 years, research on emotions has mostly ignored the role of language, while research on language has ignored the role of emotions. The cluster’s multidisciplinary structure aims to change this from both sides.
40 scientists present their themes and research at the “Showplace of Intimacy” in discussion with specialized colleagues, interested parties, and clients:

Admiration. Aging. Alexithymia. Anxiety. Beauty. Brooding. Chainsaw. Coolness. Curiosity. Dementia. Disgust. Fake Feelings. Fans and Fandom. Fascination. Forgiveness. Hymn-like Veneration. Melodrama. Mimesis. National Pride. Pride. Rural Life. Shame. The Hague. Obsession. Uncanny Places. Vexation. Zebra Finches.

All of the dialogs can be followed on five radio channels in the parlamonium, a cross between a translation transmitter and a synaethesia module. To use the words of Walter Benjamin, the parlamonium transforms human speech, which does not sound good, into a pleasant music of the spheres.

In the Apparatus: the Mirror of the Soul
The excellence cluster brings its eye-tracking system from Dahlem to Kreuzberg and the lobby of the Hebbel Theater and offers the audience an opportunity for a unique experience of itself.
With the aid of eye-motion registration that records the eye’s fixations and saccades while reading, thereby observing, for example, whether the reader lingers or flies over words and sentences, a new moving text image emerges. This is usually used to examine the effectiveness of advertising campaigns or the user-friendliness of Internet pages. But can’t we assume that eye motions during reading (how do I read de Sade?) permit conclusions about inner processes? Aiding in the voluntary evaluation are a confrontation with one’s own prejudices and an etymologist.
