The workshop of one week is divided in theory and practice. The theoretical part introduces public art and site-specific installations through the presentation of internationally known contemporary artists. The practical part incorporates site inspections, artistic research and a final site-specific intervention in form of installation or performance at the end of the workshop.
The architecture of the Center of Arts in San Luis Potosí and the technological research of Cante, which host the workshop and its 11 participants, are our starting point.
