Roaming Writing Session: Salongen

23 May 2016, 17:00–20:00

Salongen, 2016

Continuing on from the writing workshops begun in Index’ Autobiography exhibition, the Roaming Writing Sessions are practical writing workshops and group critique. The workshops roam through Stockholm, using locations beyond the gallery as a starting point for reflection on the use of text in artists’ practice.

In May, we take residence at Salongen near Slussen, a place for freelance workers to gather and labour together. The text for this month will be Dear Body, by Manual Labours, a love letter from the Computer to the Body. Manual Labours is a research project exploring physical and emotional relationships to work, initiated by Jenny Richards and Sophie Hope. This project reconsiders current time-based structures of work (when does work start and end?) and reasserts the significance of the physical (manual) aspect of immaterial, affective and emotional labour.
