This session is open to anyone interested in finding out what ethnography is, how to do it, and how to use diagrams to think it through. We’ll do an ethnographic exercise in the local area around SPACE and work on it diagrammatically in the gallery. The idea is to use ethnographic methods and diagrammatic thinking as ways of uncovering invisible forces and dynamics of social change that lie under – sometimes also at – the surface of everyday life.
