As an artist, I like to challenge received/ conventional ideas on art processes, art production, institutions, and authorship. I enjoy working on the crossovers, intersections, and contaminations of different disciplines, sometimes clearly interconnected, like literature, poetry, cinema and visual arts, sometimes not so easily related, like politics, ecology, history, psychoanalysis, and visual arts. So, I would very much to work with artists of every discipline - not only visual arts- who similarly enjoy Interdisciplinarity, indiscipline, and contamination. Other strong interests of mine more related to working processes are; contexts, site-specificity, popular culture, and audiences. So, the workshop will have an important component of group dynamics (What do we want, as a group?) site specificity (Where are we working?) and the notion of public (For whom are we working, who are we talking to?).
