Umbrella Recovery Workshop
Reflections on society through an explorative workshop with artist Julia Mandle in which broken umbrella’s are studied, repaired and hacked. With an interview with the artist and talks on repair practices by Fabienne Rachmadiev (researcher at the Sublime Imperfections NWO research program at UvA) and dr. Yngvar Steinholt (associate professor in Slavic studies & cultural history, Tromso University).
"My most recent projects investigate themes of urban revitalization, the environment and civil liberties. I have experienced that art can raise awareness and engage communities in improvement in ways where traditional politics fall short. I have come to believe that art can play both a disarming and instigating role."
