#1 HOW TO PRACTICE?
Monday, 28 January, 10am
UKS, St. Olavs gate 3
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 question, serving up their tricks and toolboxes, angry birds, excel, or yoga as UKS serves free coffee.
Inaugurating this walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 28 January at 10am Oslo-based, Dutch artist Roderick Hietbrink will involve participants in questions of procrastination and confidence (or the lack hereof), digressions and digestion, meteorites and the miraculous. Hietbrink works with video and sculpture, touching on subjects of hypocrisy, nature’s agency, and humor. He has recently exhibited at the São Paulo Biennial and Kunsthall Oslo, and also happens to be UKS’ Production Manager.
Need a way to start your week? Join the ongoing program raising questions of 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: Anders Dahl Monsen, Camilla Rocha Campos, Sara Eliassen, and Siri Hjorth & Sebastian Makonnen Kjølaas.
