A workshop led by Iván Argote and graphic designer, Jamie Shaw, exploring fictional and non-fictional story telling through combining archival and found material to create a zine. Includes zine-making materials.
Iván Argote (b. Bogotá, Columbia) is based in Paris. His work probes the role of subjectivity within historical, economic, political and moral realms. Through subversive methods and with a distinctly sensual treatment, the artist creates interventions for public space, often further developed into videos, photos and sculptures. The symbol of the public monument reappears as a target to interrogating dominant mechanisms of power and authority. Argote explores the city as a space of transformation and potentiality.
His work has been shown widely, including recent solo exhibitions at Galeria ADN, Barcelona (2015); DT Project, Brussels; Galeria Vermelho, Sao Paulo and Galerie Perrotin, Paris in 2014; Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); CA2M, Madrid (2012), among others.
Jamie Shaw is a London based designer and art director working in print, video and photography. He regularly works for Self Publish Be Happy, has designed numerous photo books and taught workshops centred on zine-making and the freedom of the book arts.
