UNDERSTANDING THE NEW WORKS by Monna Dithmer (DK)
With fearless curiosity Monna Dithmer will give us a sharp and precise cut into Nicolas Bourriaud’s thoughts about how works of art first materialize in the actual meeting with the audience – and how the work opens up for thoughts and dialogue. Drawing from her experience from more than 30 years of reviewing different theatrical arts, Monna will also provide us with tools for understanding these works. Monna Dithmer is also the woman who rounds up the seminar – and shows us into which frames we can understand the performances, thoughts and experiences that we have met at the seminar.
