Warmly welcome to Writing in plural - an experimental writing workshop + gathering. The event is part of Arte's and Museum of Impossible Forms' reciprocal programme. The workshop is based on body-related working. The exercises deal with the posthumanist body and the empathic experience of inhuman matter. The workshop is suitable for artists from different fields of art, as well as for anyone interested in experimental writing practices.
After the workshop we can continue hanging around with some snacks and talks and a performance piece. Mumblecore (Minsk/Paris 2019) is a solo piece for one performer, a microphone and a video projector. It serves as one example of the results of Titanik's project for experimental writing.
Both the workshop and the performance are in English.
