This summer I will be participating in Naropa’s Summer Writing Program, Week 3.
I am registered for Michelle Naka Pierce & Chris Pusateri’s workshop: The Poetics of Ruin!
“Writers and artists such as Bataille, Abramović, and Mendieta explore how
impermanence acts as a basis for artistic exchange. In a culture that emphasizes
preservation and the myth of lasting value, what is the function of decay, remnant,
absence, or ephemera? What constitutes identity in the performative? The
Poetics of Ruin problematizes the relationship between artist, audience, and art
production and recasts art and its cultural value.”
