Art Writing Summer School at Whitechapel

Tuesday 18, Wednesday 19 & Thursday 20 August

‘Does the angle between two walls have a happy ending?’

– J.G. Ballard

An intensive three-day summer school focusing on the production, reception and distribution of art writing. Divided into writing, editing and publishing – this practical course invites participants to consider and develop their own writing in relation to a selection of contemporary art works, giving emphasis to texts which are experimental and experiential in form.

The Summer School culminates in a limited edition poster publication produced throughout the three days by and for the participants. Led by Maria Fusco, editor, lecturer and Writer-in-Residence, Natasha Soobramanien, writer and Francesco Pedraglio, writer, editor and curator.
