The module Perfect Peripheral that Kate Sutton is conducting with David Maljković offers participants a practical grounding in the advantages and limitations of working from so-called peripheries. Combining critique with collaborative exercises, Perfect Peripheral puts an emphasis on agility and adaptation, challenging participants to develop a mastery over the spaces of production and display, using limited resources and infrastructure.
