Prendre la Parole: Ausstellung, Lesung, Workshops

Multidisciplinary artist Laura Mahnke is presenting her site specific ceramic sculptures installation accompanied by her book on the topic ‘Prendre la Parole: To take the stage, to have the word’.
In the artists’ words: “Prendre la parole literally means to take the word or to take the speech. I have made it the starting point for an auto-theoretical and impulsive research around finding my own ways of speaking: as a woman, as an artist, with my own story, in a world that is on fire. The point is that speaking must involve the body and its history, its imprint. It’s about writing and speaking, even though I don’t yet know exactly how to do it or what I actually want to say. It’s about speaking at all or speaking anyway.”

Friday the 26th., 19 – 23: Exhibition Vernissage w. Reading from the artists’ book and Party
Saturday the 27th., 12 – 17: Workshops around pottery-making mixed with creative writing
