Experimentation & Language is an intensive workshop preparing 2nd bachelor students towards their group exhibition at TKF. The workshop is part of a threefold structure, which runs through the three Bachelor years, intended to give students practical tools in relation to ‘going public’. This workshop is intended to be playful, focusing on (group) experiments and reflections upon own process and work, sharing it with peers. Specifically we will look into Happenings and the language based practice of Jenny Holzer. The practicalities of making an exhibition is also part of this week and will be continued in planning and installing the works at TKF.
