IQ is a festival that celebrates ourselves as living, pulsating bodies. Without the body there is no experience and without experience there is no ground for intelligence.

It is a festival of and by the conscious body - ensuring discovery, exchange and unexpected synergies.

More than 50 international somatic experts, artists and pedagogues are gathering to explore the critical application of somatic practices within a wide range of contexts – from arts to social engagement, from healing to politics.

BODY IQ aspires to be a platform that generates impulses for the knowledge, wisdom and wonder of the conscious, human form.

BODY IQ 2019 aims to address questions of re-embodiment in a context of global ethical and ecological crisis. Over the last decades somatic practices have become a growing field of sensorial, experiential and emancipatory learning within a broad range of educational, therapeutical and artistic contexts.

• How can somatic practices contribute to a re-education of attention and human interaction with a sustainable living world?
• How
do we mobilize, activate and organize a culture of somatic passion and care for a dignified future for all?

BODY IQ 2019 has a focus on dissemination, networking, application and somatic-activisms beyond the field into a diverse range of cultural and social environments. The three day festival between 15th and 17th of November 2019 offers workshops, talks, panel-discussions and performances with international presenters.
