What can you write about when you can’t speak? The laboratory A Place for Writing is designed to construct expression in the situation of uncertainty created by numerous events that have generated an information fog. The laboratory aims to disperse this “fog” through working with text as an artistic object and as a collective practice of expression.
The result of the laboratory will be individual and collective texts created under the careful leadership of the tutors.
