In this workshop, participants will experience, experiment with and explore their thoughts, bodies and social structure through drawing. Participants in the group will draw one another, thereby calling into question their habits of seeing and drawing, which will in turn open up a conversation about what makes us who we are; about our capabilities and desires. Participants will use drawing as an ingenious tool for reflection. We are not isolated from one another; rather, we are connected to one another and, in turn, to what we make of that. We will practise in big and small gestures, artistically and socially: it remains to be seen whether doing so will end up taking the form of an art object, a picture, an illustration, an illusion, a conversation, a comment, an explanation or an installation. Participants will start with hands-on exercises that revolve around themselves; they will make observations, try out new things, perceive with all their senses and test their own ability to invent and execute, taking that one step further every day.
