Setting the Table – Konsthall C August 28, 11.00-15.00

Part of Kungl Konsthögskolan / Royal Institute of Art’s public research event, in collaboration with Konsthall C, the first event connected to the Citations issue takes place at Konsthall C in Stockholm on August 28th. The event begins at 11:00am with Setting the table, a space to collectively unpack the desires and aims of the issue, as well as thinking critically together about what citation means and its importance within artistic research. This open dialogue, which embraces informality as a way of communicating, will continue throughout lunch. The event will end by 15:00pm. 

Registration is free, however places for the event are limited as an atmosphere of intimacy is necessary for the dialogue. We therefore ask that everyone who signs up be willing to actively engage in the discussion. Please use the following link to confirm your attendance at the event: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/setting-the-table-tickets-367503421627

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Sensing Salon workshop with Valentina Desideri and Denise Ferreira Da Silva is now postponed. The new date will be confirmed shortly.
