WRITING WORKSHOP WITH MARIANO MAYER AND VICTORIA GIL-DELGADO
EJERCICIOS DE ESTILO
Artists' fascination by literature has a long-standing tradition. Artists have embarked upon countless experiments starting from written stories, mainly since the 60s. And also, in the last decades, we have witnessed how texts are becoming more and more present in exhibitions. Up to the point that in many occasions they become ventriloquists to the art pieces and in others they act as the perfect route companions. This particular forms of communications do not happen in the usual places. They are both heterogeneous and sensible. Artistic writing is under a constant genre mutation and shows the ability to offer different versions of the same material.
In CA2M library we want to invite all writers, theorists, historians and artists to share and experiment the fascination fostered by artistic writing. For six sessions we will write using artistic projects as a starting point, and we will learn the strategies used by different creators.
At the end of the workshop, we will compile and publish the texts written by the participants.
