Sunday Morning with the Critical Studies DepartmentOnline via Zoom | Sunday 28 March, April 4, April 11 & April 18 10:30-11:59 amRSVP email@example.com (let us know if you would like to join one or all of the events in the email)
Far from animating and articulating artworks, 'SUNDAY MORNING WITH...' aims to create an environment where bodies, materials, ideas, and conversations come together, as a place to share ideas for artistic practice and the community that surrounds Shimmer.
In conjunction with our exhibition World as Lover, World as Self, students of the Critical Studies program at the Sandberg Institute will lead a series of four virtual writing workshops. These workshops aim to transform research and critique into an invitation for participation, collaboration and generative detraction. They posit our current state of physical, locational containment as a prompt for deepening our capacity for world-building and enriching our modes of connection via memory, sensory attunement, and defamiliarization.
Writing here is defined in its broadest sense; therefore, while these workshops feature exercises centered on verbal expression, participants instead might choose to "write" via drawing, sculpting, cooking, daydreaming, whatever mode of expression (or language) they choose. The workshops will occur over Zoom.

Materials, objects, sounds -- this workshop considers how these migrate, and how they show the connection of particular spaces, locations and settings within a broader ecology.with: Sina Egger, Simoni Stergioula
