We don't make ourselves in isolation.
This three-day open access space offers a rich array of means through which to explore the themes of body, time and place. Read from art books and zines to critical theory and poetry to volumes that don't fit into any neat category. Express yourself through conversation or transform provided materials to record your visit for later visitors.
A dedicated mapping wall allows people to chart their time in this space and follow those who have come before them, while opening up lines of communication for those who will follow. This process of connection also extends beyond the two-dimensional into Instagram/Twitter/Facebook spaces, and at the end of these three days will form part of an ongoing digital mapping and community building project for Making the Margins.
Making the Margins is a creative research collective that imagines new spaces for collaborative creative practice and unearths a vast archive of the edges in the Southern Hemisphere. Based at La Trobe University, it vaults disciplines from poetry to image-making to online activism and beyond, reassembling itself for every new project and inviting fascinating new collaborations to expand its potential.
