#5 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 fifth walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 25 February at 10am Norwegian artist MATIAS KIIL (b. 1995, Stavanger) will share his notes on how to save a bad day: How to get out of the house on days with low artistic self-esteem or lack of ambition—will doing hobbies, cooking, or streaming your favourite YouTube channel help? Currently a BFA student at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Kiil works with cut-up poetry and assemblage sculptures, inspecting the automated norms—political, social, or sacral—behind our everyday language and movement.
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.
