S P A C E || Wanderlust

23 January @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


THE CALL OF THE ROAD. The urge to change something. But… What? Maybe it’s not the urge to change something, but just to take action. Any action. To just… go. In this freestyle conversation salon, hosted in the zany way that belongs only to DK, you’ll be able to enjoy new people, new thinking, and new kinds of conversations that have a center, and not sides. Expect the unexpected! And be prepared to be delighted by returning to the very basic, very human face-to-face conversation setup because we will liberate you from your hand phones for the 1.5-hour Part I. (Then you can check.) Then Part II. Let’s gather in real life to talk about how it’s been going, where we have found inspiration, and lessons we have learned. A rare opportunity to process while on the road the very many feelings that crop up when we go, as and how and where we wander. Set to happen at a secret venue in the massive transit hub that is Kuala Lumpur. Hosted by DK’s A. Spaice. This event is for participating guests of the series Atelier S P A C E || Kuala Lumpur. Location details will be shared with registered guests only.

Design Kompany

What’s an ‘atelier?’

An atelier is a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer. Design Kompany’s ateliers are hosted by Akira Morita and Dipika Kohli.

ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. DK imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused* and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play? View gallery >
