The Department of Repair
Curated by Bridget Harvey, Michael Hurley, Karen Richmond and Maiko Tsutsumi.
The Department of Repair explores (re)making through fixing, repairing and mending. The project reframes the theme of ‘repair’, exploring its identities and its potential as an environmentally/socially engaged practice. The project aims to create space for broader interpretations of repairing, fixing and/or mending practice, exploring categories such as repair narratives, agents, materials, and methods/systems.
As part of the exhibition, a series of workshops took place at Camberwell Space, facilitated by invited designers and artists and looking at different aspects of repair. Second Sitters hosted a workshop on Monday 19 and 21 January.
