This workshop has the aim to open the theme of the DFG-Network “Dispositiv der Menge” towards approaches of ‘Menge’ as multitude or multiplicity. Rather than holding on to and re-presenting a clearly delimited and substantiated entity as ‘Menge’, this workshop wants to address phenomena related to more fluctuating and in/ determinate intra/sections of collectivities in order to transform the image of ‘Menge’ from an in-divi-dual-ized ‘One’ into a mani-fold multiplicity. Such (in the singular plural) multiplicity is characterized by movement and motion, fragmentation and friction, ongoingness and inherent contestability.
