By addressing images and vessels with regard to their qualities as carriers and containers, this workshop sets out to think past conventional oppositions of visuality and materiality. through a series of conversations based on readings and case studies, it seeks to open up new transdisciplinary and trans cultural perspectives for interrogating the very notions of 'image', 'thing' and 'object' in space, time, cultures and media.
