PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP WITH TANIA BRUGUERA
Tania Bruguera is a multidisciplinary artist who works in the fields of performance, contextual, installation and video art. She has done extensive research on art and its political implications for everyday life. In her works, the audience is urged to play the role of citizens. In addition to her artistic practice, Bruguera is known for her philosophical reflections on education and knowledge building and how they are related to art. She is the founder of Arte de Conducta, the first programme for performance and political art studies.
By offering this 20-hour workshop, the CA2M continues to pursue a line of work associated with education and the potential educational applications of working with the body and the language of performance. Under the guidance of Tania Bruguera, we will reflect on education and art as political practices expressed through and from the body and the performative act.
TARGET AUDIENCE: SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS AND FINE ARTS STUDENTS INTERESTED IN EDUCATION
