What exactly is “Shoptalk”? It’s not your typical artist talk. Unlike traditional artist talks, where only visual artists take the stage to discuss their works and processes, “Shoptalk” boldly broadens its horizons to showcase the creative minds of musicians, dancers, choreographers, and a diverse array of other creative practitioners. The aim of this series is to ensure maximum accessibility, making “Shoptalk” a platform for everyone, whether you’re an art enthusiast, a professional artist, or simply driven by curiosity.

Each month, we feature a different creative practitioner who offers you an enticing glimpse into their unique world of creativity.

We invite you to join us for the second event of this series, taking place on October 19th at the Nordic House. The duration of the event is 90 minutes, during which Kurt will discuss his works, followed by an engaging Q&A session.

Don’t miss this opportunity.

Admission is free of charge and everyone is welcome.  

This event will be in English.
