MagiC Carpets project: Body and Institution
In February 2020, I’ve started a project called <Body and Institution> in collaboration with Lotta Schaefer within the community of ZK/U. This project is an artistic research project attempting to look closely at the relationship between Body and Institution while using Institutional Critique as an analytical tool.
