Common forms, gestures and thoughts
The 2018 seminar invites you to explore collective accounts and experiences, in the practice of words, gardening, music and touch. But also in the methods of creating images, objects and spaces that all deal with what is ‘common’ and the need to portray it, in form, space and narrative, while confronting risk, conflict and the prospect of failure. A questioning of the forms, languages and rhythms to which we aspire insofar as, on a daily basis, we shape an institution that is interiorised and incarnated. One governed by the individual and the group, constituting a practice of bodies and of spaces with multiple voices that are able to choreograph their dissonances, doubts and development.
