This conference will discuss Bloch as a symbol of the possibility of, and invitation to, a participatory project. It is also a reflection on the concepts of social sculpture, postproduction and Open Work. Johannes Hedinger has invited speakers specialized in cultural studies, anthropology, folklore studies and various aspects of art and cultural production to debate the Bloch at the middle of its ten-year-journey.
The conference’s closing event will be the performance “In here and out there” by Bruno Jakob (Invisible Paintings) and Hans Witschi (Piano: Dontforgets 1983-2015). 4 to 5pm
