A Critical Workshop by Thomas Hirschhorn

4 – 28 March, 2019
10:00 am – 1:00 pm & 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Pavilion, Cabral Yard

Everybody is welcome to attend the Critical Workshop: “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!”. Everyone, not only those interested in art, is welcome to participate, but there are three requirements:

  • To bring a single input, contribution, work (it can be a text, an original painting, a drawing, a song, a collage, a sculpture, a video, or something else)
  • To engage in common work, discussions, exchange, thinking, judging
  • To attend a full session (3 hours)

The goals of Critical Workshop “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!” are:

  • To encourage doing something, a work of one’s own
  • To be ready to have it judged
  • To trust one’s own — very own — judgement

The input of every participant is discussed together in equality, in its outcome and consequences. The work will be judged through questions and debate such as “Is there implication?”, “Is it an event?”, “Are there encounters?”, “Does it create a new term in art?”

Both English and Malayalam speakers are welcome to participate. There will be a translator present.

To register for the workshop, please email your interest to: [email protected]

You can also sign up at the Pavilion anytime before the workshop begins.

Critical Workshop “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!” is part of Possibilities for a Non-Alienated Life, curated by Anita Dube.
