The word crepuscular means of, relating to or resembling twilight. It is derived from the Latin creper, which means dusky, dark or uncertain, doubtful, obscure. In zoology, crepuscular animals are those animals that are most active during twilight, like cats, deer and jaguars.
Whereas current dominant cultures tend to pursue lightness without acknowledging the worth of darkness and its shadows, the Institute for Crepuscular Research aims to explore the world around us by means of a crepuscular practice and explore the crepuscular itself. We gather to investigate the in-between, the non-lineair and the multiple. We learn and unlearn. We look into non-knowing as an active form of resistance. We read, write, walk, publish, exhibit and share food an thoughts.
