Through a visual, tactile and interactive confessional booth positioned at the conference, a private space for conference participants to disclose thoughts, the reading group sought to provoke the subtle and sometimes obvious denials, ironies and conflicts of private versus public tastes. Because we elucidate ourselves in relation to those around us, a question of ego becomes pertinent: how can you, as an individual, foster a taste that is unique, not perverted by conformation to the standards of others?
The confessional booth and the publication are a culmination of the reading groups thoughts, questions and observations; the groups' contribution to the Taste After Bourdieu conference.
The reading group sessions were organised by Professor Malcom Quinn and Dr. Dave Beech (Chelsea Camberwell Wimbledon Graduate School, UAL).
Project time line: 14th January – 16th May 2014.
The Taste After Bourdieu conference was organised by the University of Arts London, 15-16 May 2014 at the Banqueting Suite, Chelsea College of Arts, London.
Contributors to the publication are: Chrissa Amuah, Carolin Derveaux-Berté, Robert Gadie, Jaime Greenly, Jessica Hart, Mohammad Namazi, Professor Malcolm Quinn, Alex Roberts and Kioka Williams.
