Emperor Qin’s Mausoleum: 1. The Team/The Spot

Thursday 11 – Friday 12 January 2018, 12-6pm

The Team/The Spot is the first in a series of 6 workshops, each lasting 2 days, as part of Emperor Qin’s Mausoleum. This is a collective project and curriculum led by artist Marguerite Humeau on the quest for eternal life. The project takes as a starting point China’s first Emperor Qin (259-210 BC) and the finely crafted and engineered mausoleum he commissioned for himself. In an attempt to ‘re-humanise humanity’, Marguerite Humeau has gathered experts from the fields of architecture, botany, embalming and sound to work with us over 6 workshops.

Session 1: The Team/The Spot
What would you keep alive and where? In this workshop led by Marguerite Humeau and guest artist and designer Maki Suzuki, we will start building the framework of the project, defining and disrupting roles, and discuss prospective locations for a potential burial.
