squeeze it!

SQUEEZE IT! is a curated collection of workshops exploring the processes of translating, creating and examining language, developed by artists and practitioners. This project will initially run from 27 April-3 May 2020.

This collection of artworks and workshops are curated by the MA Contemporary Art Theory programme at Edinburgh College of Art. SQUEEZE IT! aims to navigate the inconsistencies found in translating from one language to another, create a new set of words or phrases to suitably describe artworks, or simply to (re-)examine the lexicon we use to talk about our cultures, our bodies, our food….

Used to determine the borders of social groups and movements, or as a tool to include or exclude by hiding information in plain sight, language signifies much more than just verbal communication. The outcome of this project is a programme of synchronous and asynchronous activities, events and open educational resources created by artists, writers and practitioners in the form of workshops, videos, images and written instructions.
