Pissing in Public

Pis'talk, Thursday 25 June.

Remember that uncomfortable moment when you’re outside and there is no place for you to go? The speakers of Pissing in Public share a special interest in public urination. As an artistic form of rebellion or site-specific design intervention, these artists and designers keep urine constantly in their mind (and bodies). Did you know for instance that you can map your body's ecosystem by looking at your own urine? Or that you can use it to fertilise your tomato plants? With o.a. Christian Pagh, Mike Thompson & Susana Camará Leret (Thought Collider) and Aria Altena.

Talks start at 20:00. Get your tickets now and join the facebook event. Students pay only €5,00!

Masterclass

On Friday June 26 Christian will also give an exclusive masterclass: Pissing in the Park. Together we will investigate how we can turn the Dijkspark into a public urinal and use that as a positive identity for the area.
