#2 HOW TO PRACTICE?
ANDERS DAHL MONSEN
Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS introduces a new, weekly walk-in-workshop: HOW TO PRACTICE?
Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am, rotating local and international artists teach their conspicuous version of this essential question—HOW TO PRACTICE?—serving up their tricks and toolboxes, angry birds, excel, or yoga as UKS serves free coffee.
For the second walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 4 February at 10am Norwegian artist and co-founder of the now bygone unruly and ingenious brewery, Dronebrygg, Anders Dahl Monsen will involve participants in questions of sleep and slow pace, apathy and inebriety. Working in various collaboratives, Monsen has made very little stuff, instead casting his practice outside the studio. Working with mechanisms of pizza baking, free academies, and fermentation, Monsen has replaced his individual agency with that of a larger social sphere or conversation, recently manifesting in projects at Podium and Kunstnerforbundet in Oslo.
Need a way to start your week? Join the ongoing program raising questions of honesty, pretension, working rhythms, blockages, blind spots, sleep, craft, dignity, conspiracy, accounting, body, theory, bureaucracy, ex-and-inclusion, collectivity, how to take time off and how not to, professionalization, performance, and pace. Upcoming Mondays of HOW TO PRACTICE? will feature, in order of appearance: Camilla Rocha Campos, Sara Eliassen, and Siri Hjorth & Sebastian Makonnen Kjølaas.
