Playing loosely with a performative lecture format, 'Glossary' will be a presentation involving current participants of Maumaus. This will be an informal gathering for showing research, work, or something else. Each artist has up to 10 minutes to do whatever they want. The aim of this presentation is to provide a glimpse into the different approaches to art practice by the artists involved. The evening is a gesture towards exploring common concerns and alternative perspectives. 'Glossary' aims at being a provocation to those invited to take part in this process of thinking about practice, in the spirit of sharing and open-endedness.
