30.10 – 3.11.2023 Workshop 3
Workshop 3: Doom Pot – Making at the End with Anna Reutinger
Here we are at the end, scorched and bruised, broke and tired, with no one to judge and no time to doubt.
You are asked to work backwards from the end—the end of raw material, the end of humanity, the end of a certain way of working, the end of property—resulting in a physical work by the end of the week. We will focus on a thinking-through-making approach that is based on action without hesitation, and trusting in your gut. To get started, free yourself from what you “should” do to what lights your fire. In the beginning of the week you will gather the materials, arrange the site and enter the flow.
