Workshop with Ruti Sela

open workshop

Within the framework of the course "Art Always Has Its Consequences" at the Intermedia Department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, a workshop with Ruti Sela (Tel Aviv) organized by will take place between May 3 and 5, 2011.

Decription of the workshop:
"On the workshop we will explore possibilities of transgressing distinctions such as: passive/active, meaning/context, means/ ends. During the different encounters, I would like to openly rethink and practice these distinctions and their paradoxical nature. As my work deals with questions of hyper national claims, ethical stances and the relationship between art and the social, the encounters will practice these issues thorough different manifestations."
