EVENT

Paste-ups workshop with Cássio Markowski

 

Workshop for adults and children (from the age of 8) with Brazilian artist Cássio Markowski, for anyone interested in experimenting with the possibilities of wheatpasting as a means of personal expression.

 

Also known as “poster bombing”, the paste-up is an urban intervention technique consisting in the adherence of handcrafted posters in the public space, traditionally with recourse to home-made wheat paste.

 

Cássio Markowski will guide this workshop based on the subversion and composition of images with the purpose of generating a reflection on the act of creating images and its relationship with the urban environment. By way of practices of subtraction and filling in, through cutting and pasting, the participants will have the opportunity to explore and create “ficcional narratives” from fragments of the real world, putting into practice some of the concepts of composition discussed during the process. Participants will be encouraged to use their final creations in the street.

 

To mark the occasion, we'll be launching two editions by the artist (available from Underdogs Art Store):

- “Apesar de você” - pack of three Risograph prints

- “Natureza interior” - zine/poster
