Artechne Workshop on Imaginative Ethnographies of Making (in History), 9-12 July, Maastricht
In the workshop, Sven Dupré, Jenny Boulboullé and Thijs Hagendijk will be exploring imaginative ethnography as a way to unpack the silent dimensions that constitute writing on historical practices of making, often taking the format of recipes. Departing from historical art technological recipes, the participants are asked to read between the lines and to look for the spatial, temporal, material and social dimensions that come together in making the recipes work. Through the acts of drawing and/or painting the participants imagine the silent dimensions embedded in the recipes. These imaginative ethnographies subsequently feed a discussion on complex temporalities, and the material and bodily choreographies implicit in texts and their place in ethnographical writing.
