The workshop Performative Writing explores site-specific bodily writing. 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. 

Participation is possible whenever the venue is open (tue-sun 12-6pm) and pre-registration is not required for the workshop 15-18 June. Lena Séraphin is present daily. For more infromation, contact lena.seraphin@abo.fi.

A debriefing event of the workshop is organised on Saturday 19 June.
