Content description

practical workshop
in preparation for the MA.symposium of november.

after an introduction on the concept of survival kit, the intention is to collect some ideas and create objects for the constitution of a kit to survive the symposium in november.

pracrtically we will work on:
- the fabrication of 250 cards related to the magazine ''jeune & jolie'' (proposition from Habiba Sally) and others to the ''domestic space'' (proposition from Suzanne Perrin & Géraldine Singy), and … ?
- the creation of a subjective lexicon (on notions, on references in art, on keywords related to gender and economy).
