date: thursday 15 december 2022 16.00 – 18.00 hrs
location: bradwolff projects
the undefined panorama project (2018-present) explores socio-political infrastructures and systems, and their inherent relationships. this ever-evolving project by artist yang ah ham is based on her research about how people suffer from the influence of globalization, social crisis, inequality, economy, and politics. the aim of this project is to question how contemporary society is organized, and what kind of possibilities we have for creating social structures based on care and solidarity.
the interactive digital platform of the undefined panorama allows people to move between micro and macro perspectives of the states, regions, and the world. by shifting between these scales, yang ah ham invites viewers to think about their relationships with these historical events, the relationships that could otherwise have remained invisible. during this workshop participants are encouraged to share their experiences and stories, to express their views about the relationships with keywords from the undefined panorama website through varied analog and digital methods (discussing, writing, drawing, creating sound recordings, etc).
the participants are kindly requested to register via email firstname.lastname@example.org before 7 december 2022. whereas materials and detailed guidance for working both in groups and independently are provided by the organizers, we recommend that you bring your own laptop/tablet with you. max 20 persons.
