Tate Modern Workshop

Selfie Adaptives: Performing with the Camera

Selfie Choreography, © Harold Offeh​ 

Explore the potential of the body, actions and gestures in the spirit of Franz West

Led by artist Harold Offeh, this workshop explores the link between movement and live recording.

Inspired by Franz West's Passstücke (Adaptives), you will create sculptural objects using paper and tape that incorporate selfie sticks and a camera. We will then explore how actions and movements can be developed for and mediated by this object, allowing speculative and playful forms of choreography and performance to emerge.
