Performing Public Space online workshop | Public Space Discourse & Positioning | Online
01 Mar 2024 17:00 - 20:00
Programme

Facilitator: David Limaverde (PPS tutor)

March 1 & 15 2024, 17.00-20.00h CET, online

Content of the workshop

In this two-day online workshop, you will explore what is and what could be “Public Space” in the contexts of academia, artistic research, and more specifically, in the context of the MA programme Performing Public Space (PPS)

Day 1 of the workshop will focus on the diverse genealogies of thought and theory that conceptualize Public Space as a category of research. You will also learn how Public Space has been used in the realm of artistic research, as well as how artists generate knowledge from and about it.

On Day 2, following individual artistic experiments realized by participants, you will have the chance to discuss the application of Public Space discourse in performative practices. The aim of the discussion is to generate a debate on how to artistically use this category of research, and how to position yourself in relation to it.

- short bio (150-200 words)
- motivation, including info about your work as an artist and its connection to public space (300-400 words)
