Space: condition of every journey, crossroads of countless knowledges, common place of genealogical reconstructions. Through arts and letters, sciences and techniques, the word “space” evokes certainties, problems and paradoxes, for example in its relation to the body and bodies, but also to voice and measurements, numbers and figures, rhythms and resonances. The original difference between having space and being space, that is, spatializing, making and making space. Space as a push that con-structs and dislocates, as a silent dilation of gestures that are perhaps, obscurely, the archaeological antecedent of every projection, every project, every temporality.

Reflection on “space” exposes itself to a whirlwind of references that certainly call into question different disciplines within which to talk about, without forgetting to pose the problem of their very boundary and therefore their limit; a problem that concerns the essential relationship between disciplines, between their here and their there. But where does this relation lie? Or perhaps - as a relation, precisely – it does not stand, but takes shape in the practice of transit and at the same time loses it there? “Transdisciplinarity” of all disciplines: what knowledge, what word will take charge of it? And in what space? Perhaps the ancient commonplace of philosophy?
