To encourage participatory solidarity in the project of making, breaking, and partaking of contemporary political emotions, Feel Tank Chicago (Lauren Berlant, Debbie Gould, Mary Patten, Rebecca Zorach) presents selections and itineraries from its How to be a Feel Tank Toolkit. This wiki of definitions, images, and desires around emotion and contemporary politics needs much debate and discussion. Feel Tank’s presentation seeks to open toward that.
The FeelKit is a focal point of Pathogeographies: Or, Other People’s Baggage, which made scenes at multiple sites and at Gallery 400 from June 15 to July 7, 2007. Feel Tank invited participation in the FeelKit and in other Pathogeographic activities. As they say, “Depressed? Enraged? Numb? Distracted? It Might Be Political!"
