One Person’s Trash Is Another’s Treasure: Chelsea As Site And Resource
CCW Graduate School Masterclass with Folke Köbberling
Folke Köbberling, working with Martin Kaltwasser has been exploring alternatives to consumerist ideology since 1998, through structural interventions, artistic projects, and actions. The artists typically occupy public spaces with structures built from materials liberated from waste streams, or existing “urban resources”. Thrown-away, dumped, abandoned or even rubbish materials are turned into beautiful structures; bridges, pavilions, benches, roofs and even theatres. In this two-day masterclass led by Folke, Chelsea College of Art and Design will become both the resource and the site for the collaboratively developed intervention.
The Masterclass is part of Critical Practice’s ongoing research into systems of evaluation, and waste.
Folke Köbberling and Martin Kaltwasser are internationally renowned, exhibitions and projects include the Goal! The Olympic Site London (UK) 2011, Jellyfish Theatre in Southwark, (UK) 2010, Event Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (GD) 2011, and Cars into Bicycles Bergamot Station Art Center, Los Angeles (US) 2010, they recently participated in the Architecture Biennial in Sao Paulo.
