Abstract / Description of output

Speculations is a participatory action-research workshop ordained to fabricate speculative artistic research methods.

This workshop will be composed at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop 2-4th March 2017. Our post-workshop re-calibration of the three workshops will translate them into one workshop. Shift/Work will perform this ‘calibrated’ workshop at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 21-23rd March 2017.

At the time of writing, we may only speculate on the form Speculations will take. We speculate that the workshop will enable participants to compose, experience and evaluate an iterative, action-based, peer-to-peer learning experience that is both theoretical and practical. We expect they will learn how their speculations (and their attendant risks and uncertainties) are co-affective upon the experiences of their peers. Like previous Shift/Workshops, Speculations will enact relevant discourses, practices and models of artistic paragogy to enable and inspire participants to adopt speculative methods and implement their own workshops.
