Jennifer Allen

 
COURSE OUTPUT

Through the first week of the Summer School, the course led by Jennifer Allen was dealing with treating words as an artistic medium and texts as visual, spatial, concrete elements. The whole week the participants were questioning the space, the limitations and the content one would like to write…even with a rice.
