A Critical Workshop by Thomas Hirschhorn, Pavilion, Cabral Yard, Kochi-Muziris Biennale (India)

4 – 28 March, 2019/ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm & 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm / Everybody is welcome to attend the Critical Workshop: “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!”. Everyone, not only those interested in art, is welcome to participate, but there are three requirements: 1- To bring a single input, contribution, work (it can bea text, an original painting, a drawing, a song, a collage, a sculpture, a video, or something else) 2- To engage in common work, discussions, exchange, thinking, judging. 3- To attend a full session (3 hours) The goals are: 1-To encourage doing something, a work of one’s own. 2- To be ready to have it judged. 3- To trust one’s own — very own — judgement. The input of every participant is discussed together in equality, in its outcome and consequences. The work will be judged through questions and debate such as “Is there implication?”, “Is it an event?”, “Are there encounters?”, “Does it create a new term in art?” Critical Workshop “Energy: Yes! Quality: No!” is part of Possibilities for a Non-Alienated Life, curated by Anita Dube.
