MORE INFO


Attia’s last publication RepaiR will serve as the canvas for this workshop, in which he will explore together with participants different thoughts on four fields he developed in his multi-thought project. As an artist, Attia always finds fascinating how things that are not Art can lead to Art. Textual or visual archives have this heavy absolutism, which has to become a beyond and/or a before Art. The aim is not to teach Art, but to share unexpected experiences, souvenirs, encounters, observations, imaginations and intuitions which one day could suggest a starting point for Art.

4 thoughts among others includes four subtitles:
– The anthropocene, Nature’s agency becomes institution
– Architecture, a body on both sides of the skin (or in and out of the skin)
– From the political to the intimate, music as sexual revolution
– History to do what ?


4 thoughts among others is Workshop III of HWP 2014-15: Setups / Situations / Institutions.

Lectures are open to the public.
