This year’s seminar To Perform Body explores craft in relation to materiality from political, historical, and contemporary perspectives.
We will discuss these questions with invited speakers, as well as the role of art, craft, and design in relation to materiality, artistry, and body.
The seminar will provide examples of artists’ working processes and discuss the concept of “materiality” from different perspectives, explorations, and praxes
