About this event

While showing us her artwork, in which she paints on scholars’ publications, she will raise questions about “bodies” of knowledge, libraries, books, and viewers. We will delve into sensorial experiences, such as colours and movement in space, as well as the sense of humour, as tools to create a community that is curious about and engaged with academic research.

We will also participate in a 10-minute hands-on exercise to unleash our creativity in a supportive environment.

Please ensure you have papers and markers at hand!
