"Performing the archive, the diary and the collection" Workshop with ANGELIKI AVGITIDOU
In this workshop, documentation is examined as a method of constituting knowledge within the archive, as an expression of identity and subjective experience in the diary and as a construction of self and Other in the collection. Students observe the different systems of documentation associated with art practice through presentations and project assignments.
