11. 4. – 15. 4. 2011
The first workshop will be short – in fact only one day – it will be about striping the things of their cultural connotations: striping them of their names, their purposes, places, knowledge (about them), experience, striping of our expectations about them. It’s goal is to show what influences our perception of reality, maybe not so much what influences but that something influences at all, and what this thing or things can be. At the same time everyone has to answer by himself how it is with him exactly. We would like to start in Monday morning with short explanation what the workshop is going to be about, and then send the students individually to the city to look for the appropriate material for them. During Monday afternoon and Tuesday mid-day the students will be working on their materials, and Tuesday afternoon they will present their works on the forum and discuss it. The form (medium) of works is totally free.
The first workshop will be just the preface for the second – that is to the work on the idea of the own houses of students – everyone separately. It is about trying to use just appearing during the first workshop possibility of pure perception of the things. About using the possibility of critical look at the schemes that govern us and about depriving our look at the very our space off those schemes – that is why we want it to be the idea of the own house. Not design – just the idea. This workshop will start with the presentation and discussion of the works made by students attending the first workshop (during those presentations students not attending the first workshop will be granted with possibility to see what was it all about) and will last till Friday. The way of presenting the ideas, as in the first workshop, totally depends on their character.
