Co-operative Workshop

19th November 2013

Images from a workshop that took place at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design

10 students from the school’s Visual Arts department and 5 guests from Angola took part in the day-long workshop that focused on the concept of exchange. The team explored the idea this concept contains within it a whole spectrum of actions and deeds, building on the premise that almost anything can be ‘exchanged’, be it looks, viruses, clothing, money or ideas.
