Expanding Practice

Echoing the trajectory of our world, notions of practice (and our relationship to it) are constantly shifting. I’m looking for ways to communicate the experience of what it feels like to be a time travelling entity in a human skin. A language that navigates the physical, conceptual and cultural distances between people. A language that behaves like the fascia of the body – the ties between flesh and imagination, the connective tissue between art and audience. I'm curious about the psychological distance and proxemics of this shared reality and the emergent stories that live here. This research workshop curates the working group as an ensemble of participants and provocateurs. It is open to people curious about how we create frameworks for working together, together. How we generate shared experiences by tapping into the unique ingredients of the present. How we access different temporal zones - past, present, imagined, speculative - by heightening our awareness and experimenting with perspective. The research experience highlights the ephemeral and residual archive we generate together. It asks how this can motivate us to be more perceptive and creative in our everyday lives.

please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2024. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.
