In July 2014, Broken English Training with Cristian Chironi.
This summer workshop with Cristian Chironi invites participants to explore Broken English. Being first of all a performative project by the artist, Broken English is an alternative to the English language based on a clumsy use of it. Conceived as a discursive platform, this workshop articulates itself around the destructuration / destruction of the English language through an artistic perspective.
Participants are invited to work closely with the artist. Involved in the creative process, they participate in the elaboration of a new language. This project is the occasion to share an artistic process in which language becomes the medium.
