Ifit is the interdisciplinary research platform of Christopher Dell. Being a diagrammatic form, IFIT functions as a plug-in-structure. It explores various topics around the theme of improvisation as technique. Ifit’s exploration fields are created in cooperation with international institutions, artists and scholars according to specific projects. Headquarter of IFIT is located in Berlin.

IFIT has been founded in 2000.


From 2003 until 2005 IFIT was located at the Raketenstation of the Insel Hombroich.

Since 2006 it is located in Berlin.  Director of IFIT is Christopher Dell. Dell earned a diploma magna cum laude in professional music from the Berklee College of Music, Boston and a MA of Human Resources/Organisational Development from the TU Kaiserslautern. He holds a Doctorate (Dr. phil.) in Organizational Psychology, earned at University Duisburg-Essen and a Habilitation in cultural studies at University Magdeburg.

IFIT has the city as its main target of investigation. IFIT puts forth the thesis that the city consists of improvisation. It draws on a concept of improvisation as technology, that is the constructive working with contingency in an assembage of actions, actors, things and discourses on sites.

Today it is common ground in the urbanistic discourse to interprete the city not as an object but as a performative process full of contingency. This change not only came about by discovering empiric facts but also by theoretical discourses, the latter changing the frame of how one looked at and saw the empiric facts of the city. Before this background, the research and teaching of IFIT  is devoted to a theoretical practice that critically discusses questions concerning the analysis of architecture, urbanism and the city today.

Thematically IFIT is especially interested in the aspect of the relational organization of the city, unfolding through actions, actors, things and discourses on sites. Its investigation reflects on how this organization takes place, how it comes into functioning, how it is or could be designed, how it can be researched upon and how it can be theorized.

The research undertaken by Ifit also reflects upon which vizualisation strategies, epistemological categories and image politics of planning, architecture and urban development are ingrained in the design of and research upon the relational organization of the city and its discourses. This long durée exploration is carried out through life projects, exhibitions, event series, seminars, articles, books, CDs, concerts, performance lectures or performative installations.

IFIT Misson

It is the mission of IFIT to explore the field of improvisation from noumerous perspectives. The research includes modern technologies of work as well as sociological, architectural and arts-based modes of production. It is the aim to show, analyse and systemize the coherence of improvisation in organisation.

The work of IFIT concentrates on organizational improvisation. OI is the conception of improvisation, by an organization and/or its members, drawing on available material, cognitive, affective and social resources. Improvisation technology ist the structural and strategic concept behind organizational use of improvisation. It develops through the structuring of the process of action and learning.

Improvisation technology relies on the assumption that competent practicioners know more than they can say. They exhibit a kind of knowing-in-practise, much of which is tacit. Improvisation technology, though protocolling, analyzing and synthezising of actual performance tries to construct test models of knowing and thereby using the distinctive structure of reflection-in-action (Schoen). This capacity helps to cope with the unique, uncertain, and conflicted situations of practise.

Metazoon vs. Kölner Brett
with b&k+ architects

The development of a composition always begins by asking after the first impulse; the finding of a nucleus, from which all subsequent courses and forms spiral and unfold. In the case of metazoon (1) the module stands in the foreground. Its attributes and capacities to structure an intuitive context play a decisive role in the world of music and create an interface to the architecture of b&k+. The “wiring diagram” of the building plans for the Cologne Brett (Kölner- Bretts) illustrates very clearly that the basic concept of the design of the module produces awide range of possible uses, the so-called „ switch- options.“

The economy of relations is secured through the starting point of two basic modules. The compositional process of metazoon is designed that way. The two meta-blocks are comprised of a ‚group of 4 structure‘ and a ‚group of 5 structure‘. Block one has a binary character, block two is organized tenaer. The asymmetrical relation of the numbers, internal as well as external, secures in the setting of the nuclei a wide range of options of overlapping and phase shifts. Beginning with this basic model,variations of the continuing work process are diverted, to find the levels of theappropriate outlines. The planes can be the bass area (e.g. basslauf, bass drum) or the middle to high area (melody, layer, snare, hi hat). The rhythmical aspect plays into the genetic process as well. Thus, every tone-form needs its own rhythmical language. The variable finding of the melodies always stands in this context of the realization of the planes.

The parameters of sound and the sound objects are generated through experimental processes in which specific sound-colors, like percussion, take on a special role. They elucidate the rhythmical structure and establish transparency in relation to the original grids and planes. The other sounds are produced through a sampling process. Through this, according to the musical context, electronic space alienations areincorporated. They are, however, strictly tied to the harmonic structure. The dynamic of the piece remains externally rather static, yet gains immense meaning for the inner structure of the individual tone forms and tone tracks. Because in the end, a vital organic whole is only achieved through finely linked inconsistencies, through the vitality of a core, through an inward moving intensity of impulses.

The result of the extraction is a twelve plus one layer which is “encased” in the manifold variations of metazoon. A complex sound-image emerges which enables an openness of the perspectives of perception. Further pieces develop out of the original logic, out of metazoon. Zoomed details transform themselves into new nuclei, which in reaction to foreign elements produce their own peripheries. They are called co-axial objects, The individual spaces within the compositional context are achieved through the improvisation of the vibraphone. In an improvisational treatment of the co-axial objects, frictions build; the surfaces of the basic structure are torn and re-recorded, submerged in discontinuity. The subjective immediacy makes its way through the planned texture, instills crises, in order to pause briefly in the absences. „ that essential nothing, based on which everything is able to come into appearance…… only the pure absence can inspire….(Derrida)

1 above 0 – Wie wollen Sie leben?
How do you want to live? – Soundinstallation and Radioinstallation-in-Progress
in cooperation with WDR and Museum for Applied Art, Cologne

Concerning the normation of the everyday life, the focus of WWSL lies not so much on the regulation aspects but on the attempt to describe that, what people do in relation to the realised and the unrealised. Which imaginations of utopia play a role and which interests influence each other in the habitual field of the vectors of social practise? In WWSL the interview is not an instrument for statistical catalogisation but a tool to uncover criteria and viewpoints of a social rolebuilding und their options of action.

The documentary material opens itself up as a real situation, whithout producing ostensible unambiguousness. Mechanisms of identifikation are subverted and a multiple validity established, that makes the public speher a central topic of its own metadiscourse.
Open are the following questions: Are actions possible, that do not produce spaces of isolation? Is the social still communicable? Is sociability not constant excvession of demand for the subject? Art in this case is not represantation but reflexion of society and produces a knowledge that traverses the borders of conventional methods between mikro and makro.

Through a new orientation in the definition of knowledge, improvisation is to bedicovered as a central ressource of education. More and more the informal accumulation of knowledge combined with micdrodiversity and intervention constitute the field of contemporary practises.

Radical Architecture III – Processing Uncertainty
MAK Cologne in cooperation with Bernd Kniess Architects (Conference/Exhibition/Performative Installation).

New modes of regional planning are provoked by contemporary art practises. This exhibition and conference brings together for the first time the different approaches of alternative contemoporary city planning and urban practises in europe. It shows diversity of positions and paradigms devoted to the city which are still readily discussed and whose impulses come from a range of disciplines: architecture, town-planing, art, sociology and cultural studies to name just a few.

A variety of concepts exist beside one another. The longing for the European city is abandoned for new progressive concepts and experimental models, leading to a wide spectrum of ways to understand the city.

Planners, artists and scientists play a huge role as strategists and authors of this development. Focusing on specific problems, they develop new perspectives for designing “the city” which lead to new forms of usage and flexibility. The phenomenon of shrinking cities requires a different concept and an open standpoint, which not only defines problems but discovers new qualities and modes action such as improvisation and recycling.

„wave or particle-introducing the reverse competence“ – Workshop in cooperation with Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Nürnberg, Prof Arno Brandlhuber

Aim is a concept of action, that incorporates in its process of production the resolution and obstacles at the same time. Result is a state of permanent crisis. Improvisation then would be the competence to produce reversible standpoints. (which is not to misinterpret as opportunism, but to be understood as a dialectical approach to action). The normativity of an absolute improvisation implies the rejection of the reproduction of known typologies and stereotype patterns. Or: the only solution is the active production of autobiography.

The Activist Sounding
Performative Installation in cooperation with the Stadtmuseum Düsseldorf

The Private is Political-Performance is Political- Politics is Performance. The performing arts … have indeed a strong affinity with politics. Performing artists-dancers, play-actors, musicians and the like ¯ need an audience to show their virtuosity, just as acting man need the presence of others before whom they can appear; both need a publicly organized space for their work and both depend upon others for the performance itself. Hannah Arendt (1968). A Performance demonstrates an action. A Performance needs witnesses. A Performance existits only in the mode of second order beacues it needs the observation of others in order to realize itself. A Performance is of double nature: it is specific product of a specific actor and also quintessence of the mode of production in its entirety. PLAY!

Workshop Improv Technology
Design of transformative Minimal-Structures in Organisation, Int. Summerclass, Zollverein School Essen

In the mode of Open-Space the concept of improvisation is applied to the workshop itself. Focus is on the organisation of improvisation: through the implementation of minimal structures an organisational field for social and technical transformation is established. We take a dialectical approach in trying to build an improvisational model which captures the highly organic dimensions of the ‚flexible model‘ but then goes further to achieve such flexibility upon a ‚minimal structure‘. Successful product innovation combines limited structure with freedom to improvize.

Similarly, the task of balancing ‚firmness‘ and ‚flexibility‘ can be achieved through project management formality and project management autonomy and resource flexibility, respectively.

Building on these arguments, we go a step further and propose an „improvisational model“ of product innovation which accomplishes this subtle synthesis in turbulent environments. This dialectical approach implies the call for an appropriate balance between “exploration” (search, variation, experimentation, innovation, etc.) and “exploitation” (refinement, efficiency, implementation, etc .) in organizational adaptive processes, Similarly, in new service development, we consider the need to combine systematic modelling and fortuity – these are analogous to structure and flexibility.

Schlossalast with Bernd Kniess Architects

Finding a new solution for the schlosspalast, which leaves behind ideologies and exploits the maximum capacity of a building incorporating participative structures and mixed use zones. Antagonisms are transformed into complimentary attributes of a structural model. As 3-dimensional claims they are introduced into a self-generating system. We propose a notion of building that is not based on realisation but on the real itself and as such is connected to the complexities of the circumstance. Consequently we envision a research program that includes the call for a site- and vectorspecific methodology.

Theater Hebbel am Ufer Berlinin cooperation with Ruth Hommelsheim

While traditional urban structures and the public sphere are leaving the city theperipheric pushes into the city. The city in the suburb area develops into a economically and socially autonomous structure, inner city areas are losing relevance. How are differences constituted? Do we see a loss of control concerning the city,concerning the self? How are identities constructed? In thies context it is the task of the artist to contest the structures of everyday life, with architectural and infrastructural centres of reference, the seismographic tracking of stories and biographies that are linked to this complex.
