Festivals: M:ST 6 Biennial | October 15 - 27, 2012.
Mutopia 7 was a five-day workshop held at the Banff Center this June. Part of M:ST 5.5, Mutopia 7 was the latest in a series of workshops facilitated by John Grzinich (Estonia) using strategies to enrich art-making processes inspired by a variety of disciplines and other fields of social and cultural research. Throughout the five days at the Banff Centre, the town of Banff and the surrounding landscape the participants collected and grew a documentation archive of exercises and experiences. The Mutopia 7 collective did not strive to produce finished “pieces”, rather developed a series of trials and actions that lead to a greater understanding of self, group, place and site.
