“Line Beyond Drawing” with Angeliki Avgitidou

Description

This practice-based workshop will explore how lines

a. outline territories of power and mark visible and invisible borders

c. delineate trajectories in the public space in performance art.

The political, performative and conceptual potentials of the line will be explored though group and one-person exercises.
