This workshop series aims to test a performative approach to visual arts education, exploring a way of experiencing graphics spatially, through the body.
Within its two editions, each group of students has been invited to design an exercise reenacting a particular concept of line, based on the words and practice of a different artist. The result is a multifaceted collection of replicable actions embodying a wide range of ‘line concepts’ by a growing list of authors including Pierrette Bloch, Marcel Duchamp, Adrian Frutiger, Gego, Paul Klee, Sol LeWitt, Henri Michaux and John Ruskin.
