Listening as collaboration; we like the perceivable messiness
A presentation by Hong-Kai Wang
May 28th, 6pm
Hong-Kai Wang will present a second installment of her ongoing research-based collaboration with the curator Nova Benway for The Public School New York. The first iteration took place at ‘Living Labor: Marxism and Performance Studies’ conference at New York University on 13 April 2014.
Born in Huwei, Taiwan, Hong-Kai Wang works with listening as a conceptual tool to explore social relations and the (re)construction of cultural memory, focused on a collaborative and process-driven approach to production. Wang has presented her work at Kunsthall Trondheim (NO), Para Site (HK), Museum of Modern Art (US), Arnold Schoenberg Center (AT), Contemporary Art Museum Kumamoto (JP), Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery (CA) among others.
FANTASTIC WEDNESDAYS: On the Wednesdays of the once-monthly seminar weeks, the PhD in Practice opens its doors to the Academy, friends, and other interested people from 6pm till 9pm. Programme participants (individually or collaboratively) use the space DG 12, one of the attics at the academy, to present work in progress, and experiment with different formats of presentation.
