Talk: Things: Building and Maintenance

Talk: Things: Building and Maintenance

23 November 2016

Wednesday 23 November, 7.00 – 8.00pm

Artist Mike Cooter presents a lecture on the association between ideas and things across time. Considering meaning in relationship to design, and history as form of stop-motion animation, this wide-ranging and generously illustrated talk will address such sculptural concerns as co-fabrication (in the studio and elsewhere), infrastructures of context and how objects might collaboratively engineer their place in the world.

Mike Cooter is an artist based in London. He is currently completing his doctorate on MacGuffins at Goldsmiths (University of London). Recent writing has been published by art-agenda and The Exhibitionist, and his work has been included in exhibitions at the Boghossian Foundation - Villa Empain (Brussels), Stroom den Haag (The Hague) and the Swiss Institute (New York) in 2016. More information can be found at mikecooter.org
