communities and everyday repair practices
From Teresa Dillon
**Please pass on/share
For those based in or resident in the UK, I have a fully-funded PhD avail for
artists interested in working with me on issues relating to repair and its
associated cultures. Repair cultures broadly referring here to applied,
artistic, scholarly and civic practices, which deal with the upkeep,
maintenance, care and reuse of objects, materials, the environment, buildings,
systems, relations and processes.
Expressions of Interest (EOI) deadline, Fri, 9th.
For this we need 2 page statement, plus 1 page CV.
Info on app: http://3d3research.co.uk/information/expressions-of-interest/
EOI applications then followed by full submission.
Applications open to those interested in wishing to create and develop work
which investigates their own and other artistic practices dealing with repair
and how this links to wider ecological and environmental questions, including
national and international policies of repair, different repair communities
and everyday repair practices.
My special interest lies in tech and repair practices and policy so keen to
attract applications in this space. Im also open to receiving applications
from curators or producers interested in the topic.

old screens that once sat inside the Palladium, an iconic New York
nightclub that closed in 1997. “They used to have 16 of these, rotating
in the club — everybody danced underneath,” Lui recalls. “When they went
out of business I took all the equipment back. And right now, I’m
