WORKSHOP AS AN ARTISTIC PRACTICE,
The collaborative, discursive, creation in a workshop is part of my idea of a community based, conceptual strategy to produce art works together, therefore I have done various workshops and seminars as an artistic practice, for example:
PUT IN PRESENCE, 2017, (1,5-4hrs)
Until the 1960 „art has seemed to be „out of touch“ with its ‚public’ with ‚social values’, with ‚economic realities’, with information theory, linguistic analyis etc.“ (Art & Language, 1972, 14). This changed tremendously for art, but didn’t affected vice versa literature, it even lead contemporary literature to a prohibition of presence and a refutation of literature as language art which is also to be shown, put in public, put in presence. The move to digitality changed the ways of publishing and visibility of language, but the contextualization and theorizing hasn’t even started. This collaborative workshop collects and shares knowledge, liberates ideas and words etc. and tries to find answers and new questions.
BREAKING WHITES, 2019, (1,5-4hrs)
White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves of Whites (Robin Di Angelo). This Workshop invites to be part of the discursive practice of learning about our own Whiteness and White fragile behavior. The workshop is used as a tool of processing the dialog about racism in our culture.
