A Worn World invites people of any age, origin, gender and ability to take part in open workshops and atelier – to share stories of clothes, shame, memories and fears, to exchange experiences and hand-on-practices.
Clothes can produce memories and emotions like fear, shame and sometimes simply pleasure. They have a distinct relation to the self: they carry spores of desire, appear in phantasies, remind us their former wearers, and mark social relation. In wearing clothes the personal and imaginary meets the symbolic and the social.
At this year’s ANTI Festival the artistwin deufert&plischke starts out a new participatory art project in Kuopio. They have started the work with the local students of Savonia University and open the process to all audiences in Kuopio during the festival.
You are invited to knit, sew and test different articles of clothing/objects/materials, discuss somatic experiences, dance, move – to transform. Working will happen in teams but there is always a space to plunge into individual universes. Each collaborator will hold a place in the artwork. Each process is documented and shared in mutually agreed forms.
We invite you to contact us and sign up in the process and workshops in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org ! Please tell us shortly about yourself (who you are, why you’d like to be involved, what dates you’d like to participate).
Registration in advance is voluntary – you may also simply pop in!
Safe festival experience
Please follow our general instructions for a Corona safe festival experience!
A Worn World is neither a workshop nor a performance but understands itself as an independent, yet ever fermenting artwork by engaging with the vibrant nature of clothes, tuning into their sensorial specificities, exploring gender prescriptions, collecting memory associations, investigating the politics of their fabrication, inventing ways that they can augment our bodily faculties. This traveling artwork will grow on stories about fear, shame, pleasure, ex-or inclusion, the potential that clothes contain for the making and marking of movement, for the presence of a person, and how shifts in presence can be provoked and acknowledged.
Organised in the framework of the Future DiverCities project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Supported by Goethe-Institut Finnland and German Federal Foreign Office.
