A Place for Writing: A creative laboratory by the collective Digital Object Alliance
Garage Glass Room
Participants in the laboratory A Place for Writing will be asked to think about how the “clarity” of texts can be defined today and to write texts calling for “clarity” when words are insufficient.

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.


November 24, 11:30–13:00

December 1, 11:00–13:00

December 8, 11:00–13:00


The number of places is limited. To take part, please fill in an application form. Experience of writing texts or training in the field is not required. You should only apply if you can attend all three meetings of the laboratory, on November 24 and December 1 and 8 from 19:00 to 21:00.
