Snejanka Mihaylova (Sofia, BG, 1978) holds a degree in philosophy of language and hermeneutics from the University of Florence (IT, 1996-2001). Mihaylova has also been trained in theater studies and completed a master’s degree in theater at DasArts, Amsterdam (2008-2010). In 2012, she began a residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht. Her work, Theatre of Thought, for which she published an eponymous book, has been performed in several locations in Europe, including De Hallen in Haarlem (NL, 2011).
Snejanka Mihaylova’s works are spoken performances and publications that consider the tension between experimental philosophy and linguistics. Her project, “Practical Training in Thinking”, consists of a publication and a seminar – a two-part conceptual exercise. The book is on sale in the museum shop (designed by Philip Baber, published by The Last Books, € 18,-) and will be officially presented at the seminar, which Mihaylova is organizing with the philosopher Mladen Dolar.
This meeting will explore the differences between theoretical thought and action in specific situations. Participants will perform exercises focusing on different “states” of thinking. The focus here is not on the success or failure of these mental exercises, but on the use of conceptual systems that can dissolve the divide between observation and imagination, as well as research and performance.
