Raqs Media Collective

Raqs Media Collective Artist Class

Performa Hub, 13 Crosby Street MAP
Free with RSVP

Raqs Media Collective presents a selection from their working notes towards their Performa 13 Commission, The Last International. The presentation focuses on their method of welding together research, speculation, discovery, and the crafting of new materials - texts and images - to create a hybrid form that is part lecture, part symposium, part performance, and part installation, staging and demonstrating some new procedures for thinking aloud. Raqs' interest in the energy of civic gatherings all over the world, ongoing conversations that challenge capital, and their willingness to engage with the illumination of utopian ideas, runs as an undercurrent throughout the talk, as it does in The Last International.
