Open seminar: To Perform Body 2024

Culture and languages

Welcome to an open seminar on arts and crafts at Campus Steneby in Dals Långed!

21 Mar 2024
09:00 - 16:00
Samlingssalen, Campus Steneby, Dals Långed

To Perform Body 2024 wishes to discuss the role of the practitioner in defining specific artistic perspectives and understandings. Through the articulation of the concept of transposition from a chosen perspective, exploration, and practice, our guests contribute to the ongoing debate on how transposition can be defined and implemented within an artistic field. The aim is to increase interest in the ability of craft and art to inform the emergence of complexity in processes that are rarely made visible.

To Perform Body 2024 is the eighth seminar in the series by the program Textile-Body-Space at HDK–Valand Campus Steneby. This year the seminar is supported by the University of Gothenburg HDK–Valand, Göteborgs Slöjdförening and Dals Långeds utvecklingsråd.
