#25 HOW TO PRACTICE?
Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS presents the weekly walk-in-workshop: HOW TO PRACTICE?
For the 25th walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 11 November at 10am, UKS has invited Spanish, Oslo-based artist DORA GARCÍA (b. 1965) for an open discussion about her research-based practice, which is strongly characterized by the involvement of the audience. In contrast to the classical artist/assistant relationship—where the young artist works according to the wishes of the more established artist—García’s practice depends on non-hierarchical collaborations. During her workshop at UKS García will initiate a group exercise highlighting this approach, involving the audience in questions relating to ethical dilemmas found within contemporary society.
