Soft Logics

The B+B archive was on display at the Künstlerhaus, Stuttgart from 6 February–4 April 2004 (see timeline for more info). On 1 April we travelled back to Stuttgart with Tara Sampy to enliven the archive. Tara gave a presentation about the Allotment Archive and from 2–4 April we all took part in the conference 'Soft Logics in der Kunstvermittlung' organised by Carmen Mörsch. The conference investigated the clashes and confrontations between art and education by looking at key projects and methodologies from the UK, Belgium and Germany.
