CRA’P laboratories 2011

May – June – July / October – November – December

This LAB aims to generate a transmission critical framework to research body based practices: improvisation sessions, collaborative proposals, debates about the discourses underlying the space of representation, and shared reflections on other contemporary art disciplines.

The LAB provides a space for formal and informal exchange of knowledge, based on a principle of reciprocity during a timeshare that draws from the experiences, capabilities and proposals of each participant. Its continuity responds to the need to develop a process of exchange, collaboration and dialogue based on research and experimentation in order to generate a common ground of each individuals performing experience.

The essence of this LAB is that anyone interested can bring their knowledge, experience or views, as we are interested in building a continously evolving collective knowledge map.
