Studio XX proudly welcomes you to participate in Wearable Resistance, an exciting activist creation project mixing DIY electronics and second-hand clothing, led by De Geuzen, joining us from The Netherlands.
Co-presented with Artivistic TURN*ON and with financial support from The Mondriaan Foundation, Amsterdam.
Exploring the body as billboard, De Geuzen will lead a three-day collaborative creation session for up to twelve participants. Throughout this skillshare, participants will collaboratively brainstorm and play with a mix of electronics and traditional handicrafts. Armed with curiosity, secondhand clothing, LEDs, electronic gear, scissors and glue, the group will create a variety of prototypes aimed at transforming the body into a walking billboard or protest sign. Novices and experts alike are welcome to participate.
The results of the workshop will be performed at TURN*ON gathering’s closing event RESIST ME RELEASE ME : TURN ON ACT ON featuring special guest curator Shu Lea Cheang, on October 17th.
About De Geuzen
Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, De Geuzen is a foundation for multi-visual research and the collaborative identity of Riek Sijbring, Femke Snelting and Renée Turner. Since 1996, they have employed a variety of tactics to explore female identity, narratives of the archive and media image ecologies. Exhibitions, workshops and online projects operate as thematic framing devices where the group investigates and tests ideas collectively with different publics. Characterizing what they do as research, their work is open-ended and values processes of exchange and critical interrogation.
