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.


Pre-registration is required. Limited number of places.
PLEASE NOTE! Please wait for confirmation that you have been allocated a place.
