Bogomir Doringer is a Serbian / Dutch artist, curator and head of education & research at Nxt Museum in Amsterdam. At Dutch Digital Day, he will be presenting the ongoing project I Dance Alone, which observes clubbing from a birds-eye-view as a mirror or reaction to socio-political changes. Zooming into dancing gestures and anonymous dancing bodies has provided extensive knowledge and insight into club culture. In addition, the project established the term "dance of urgency", a dance that aims to empower individuals and groups in times of personal or collective crisis. Such a dance seeks to enable us to build communities of resistance, coping and catharsis - becoming a powerful agent of urban renewal.
