The Ventriloquist Summerschool on Illusion – Apply Now


This year’s edition of The Ventriloquist Summerschool will be busy looking into the role of Illusion as a way of being, working and generating knowledge. What’s involved in accepting, rejecting, validating and iterating such constructs and how do we use them to project and deal with what’s in front and ahead of us?

Five parallel workshops will run during the week at 1857 – a former lumberyard located in the Grønland area, along with a public programme of three evening lectures (names tbc).

The 35 selected participants will get time, space and infrastructure to develop their own projects.

We’re excited to present you the tutor lineup:

– Talk Magazine / USA (Eric Hu + Harry Gassel)
– Anu Vathra / EE
– Nicole Killian / USA
– Kristina Ketola Bore / NO
– João Doria / BR/NO
