Open call for the workshop “Charismatic objects”

Apply until Saturday, 30 March 2024

A workshop for contemporary art practices by Dieter Hammer M.A., Philosopher and Artist

Time: 1 & 3 April 2024. The workshop will be realized through two meetings, the first at the Museum of Contemporary Art – Skopje, on April 1 (Monday), in the period 11:00-13:30, and the second on April 3 (Wednesday), in the period 11:00 -13:30, at the Faculty of Fine Arts – Skopje (facility: Faculty of Pedagogy).

The semiotisation of objects, thus having charismatic agency, has played a vital role in creating and stabilizing narratives, create social cohesion, but also reframe stereotypes and introduce new ideas. Through the workshop participants are introduced to various ways of the semiotisation of things (by concept, design, ready made) and will be given insight in the ways objects have agency within an aesthetic context.

The workshop is intended for students in the final years of their studies and for artists who are at the beginning of their artistic practice. The workshop will be in English.

Interested participants can register until March 30, by filling out the form available at the following link.

Dieter works in various media and performance. Over the last decade his research and practice have focused on the aesthetic, theoretical and philosophical implications of photography as a medium. He coined the name “Transmimetic Photography” for a practice combining lens-based and non-lens-based photography. In addition, he expanded the concept of photography by introducing photographic ready-mades.

The workshop is a collaboration of the Museum of Contemporary Art – Skopje, the Faculty of Fine Arts – Skopje and OPA Foundation.
