What is there to observe beyond all the romantic clichés? A host of non-normative new forms of living together and relationships based on kinship rooted in deep care and concern, a mutual willingness to listen and empathy for others. Discussions about love lead us indirectly to questions of power. How do we understand love in relation to dominance, to a patriarchal system? How can love support, emancipate and empower people? What does love mean for a community of like minds, beyond the boundaries of the conventional couple? Can we evolve towards a community of love, averse to individualistic interpretations of love? What are some different possible conceptions of love? In how many different ways can we give and receive love? When does love go beyond the binary? Which forms can it take beyond the oh-so-ingrained couple model? In our amorous programme we’ll attempt to cover all these diverse perspectives and more. Beyond the romantic and the self.
