Doing, Making and Being

What is it to learn?
Marie Koch is searching for new valuation and thinking that will increase knowledge within the field of artistic and design research seen from the perspective of the learner.
Research is entering unexplored territories within craftsmanship as well as exploring the interface of doing art, craft and design and doing textile graffiti. The overall purpose is meant to lead to a mirroring of learning and identity in formal learning spaces and in informal spaces.
This lecture will take you through learning processes based on activists doing graffiti and a cross-disciplinary discussions between an artist, a mathematician and a didactic approach to creation.
