Participant in five-day artist and curator workshop.
18 – 23 May 2004 – Telecom Italia Future Centre, Venice
Artist: Rirkrit Tiravanija
Curator: Maurizio Bortolotti
The focus of the workshop was the investigation of different forms of interaction, together with an artist who has adopted as personal language the ephemeral dimension of the event, through which he tries to break the borders between the several institutions of the world of art in order to obtain an open ground for creation.
The work of Rirkrit Tiravanija mainly consisted in the realisation of happenings in which the public participates with an active role. The artist created situations and environments in which the border between the artist and his public is questioned.
Other lecturers and guests: Daniel Birnbaum, Richard Shusterman,Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe
