Explore the found object tradition with Mia You and Romy Day Winkel in our workshop "Erase, Deface, Remediate", where we delve into the practice of creating new texts from existing ones. The session begins with a brief overview of the history of this tradition, followed by a collective examination of texts within the current Onomatopee installation—comprising all published books.

Participants will then engage in a moving exercise, workshopping found texts and finally transforming them into personalized bookmarks.
