Symposium on Unmaking
Screenshot 2017-09-22 10.51.45 copy.png

SYMPOSIUM 10am-5pm, 11 Nov. 2017

Arts-research symposium, featuring a day of talks and other interventions.
This symposium puts forward Unmaking as a form of resistance. The taking apart of technology - whether algorithmic or mechanic - is a step in reaching new understanding, whether cultural, historical, or technical. The focus on movement in this process, for example through choreographic, musical, textile, or political action, provides common language for discussion across disciplines. The symposium is convened by the PENELOPE project, where the mythological figure of Penelope from Ancient Greece provides a universal paradigm of unmaking.

Old Post Hall, Sheffield Institute of Arts, Fitzalan Square, Sheffield S1 2AY
Tickets: £17.50 (£15 with concert pass)
