PARALLEL COURSES TO THE CLÍNIQUES D’ES BALUARD
A writing workshop in which each participant will perform exercises in different registers, all of them linked to writing and focussed on a selection of art works from the Es Baluard collection. The aim is to promote training in the development of texts describing one’s own work or that of others and a critical analysis of the same.
