#6 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?
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 sixth walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 4 March at 10am Norwegian artist HÅKON HOFFART (b. 1984, Oslo) will talk about navigating the modern world as a professional, aspiring, or hopeful artist. Are you able to channel your subconscious while shrugging it off? Do you even want to? Hoffart is a multi-disciplinary artist working in painting, film, memes, and poetry. After years of work within the digital underground scene, he got his breakthrough last year with the critically acclaimed novel Rolling Down The Hill in a Barrel of Gold (Ruller nedover skråningen i en tønne av gull).
Need a way to start your week? Join the ongoing program raising questions of trauma, truisms, privilege, priorities, refusal, collaboration, 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.
