The workshop Performative Writing explores site-specific bodily writing on 15-18 June. It focuses on the relationality between body, site, observation and writing as we make note of bodily observations in and about the exhibition space. The workshop is organised by visual artist, postdoc researcher Lena Séraphin. The workshop is multilingual. 

The debriefing of the workshop will be held on Saturday 19 June. During the event participants will share experiences of the writing process, and read texts aloud together, as well as try to work on texts as traces of presence. For more information, contact lena.seraphin@abo.fi.

Register to the event through this link per Tuesday 15 June.
