Tether for an Engagement
Berlin Art Institute
In her lecture for Berlin Art Institute, Emma Waltraud Howes will discuss the benefits of improvisation in the careers of international artists. She will present her most recent work, Tether for an Engagement, as a working methodology to explore interdependencies – techniques for the comprehension of internalized borders, methods for translation and magnification to an external site, and an oscillation between interior and exterior dynamics. She will introduce practical exercises toward a method for supporting the agency and creativity of the individual. Exercises include a frame to work within, the highlighting of embodied knowledge, and exploration of accumulative possibilities that occur when diverse individual skill sets encounter one another.
