out of the needs
Under the title "out of the needs", Naprushkina would like to raise the question about the possibilities of collective demands and actions. What are the needs and how can a collective claim be formulated? In the workshops, Naprushkina will focus on socially engaged practices achieved through collective practice and will share her artistic and activist practices based on the experiences working within self-organized structures and collaborative models, such as the Office For Anti-Propaganda, Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit or Moabit Mountain College.
To foster the power of imagination, Naprushkina offers to develop a shadow theater together, where protagonists, narratives, memories and claims can merge into a collective action.
