Program of workshops: Marcel Broodthaers Moscow Museum of Digital Art (MBMM)

Public program accompanying the exhibition Marcel Broodthaers. Poetry and images
26 October – 9 December 2018

DESCRIPTION

This series of twelve interactive workshops is dedicated to Marcel Broodthaers’ practice and its conceptual implications. The participants will create their own artworks in the form of homages or transmedia translations of pieces originally created by the Belgian artist.

The program’s structure is a reference to the most famous, and ironic, project by Marcel Broodthaers—Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles. All workshops are named after the departments of Marcel Broodthaers Moscow Museum of Digital Art—an imaginary museum invented by Garage, with all the artworks executed by the participants becoming part of its collection.

The project would be of interest for those who are fond of linguistic art. We welcome English and French speaking participants, as well as connoisseurs of French and/or Belgian poetry and literature. Detailed information regarding terms of participation can be found in the announcements of each workshop.
