Social Sculpture revolved around four main axes: body awareness spatial awareness creative awareness collaboration Social sculpture is a phrase to describe an expanded concept of art that was advocated by the German conceptual artist Joseph Beuys (1921-1986), in the seventies of the last century. Beuys created the term "social sculpture" to embody his understanding of art's potential to transform society. As a work of art, a social sculpture includes human activity that strives to structure and shape society or the environment. The central idea of a social sculptor is an person/artist who creates structures in society using language, thoughts, actions, and objects. Social Sculpture revolved around four main axes:
body awareness - spatial awareness - creativity - collaboration
The position of the body in surrounding environment/location. The concept focus on the relations between the bodies to each other, movement, objects and surrounding space / environment. Participants are engaged in physical movements and actions, changing roles, decision-making, exchange of ideas and interrogating performativity. Sculptural and textile materials will be introduced as working tools.
