1646 and Page Not Found invite you for an experimental writing workshop by writer, artist and artist-book publisher Anna M. Szaflarski!

Commingling, harmonic behaviour and immaculately slimy conception are themes drawn from Paul DD Smith’s current exhibition The Chiral Gate at 1646. They are also the jump-off point for this special edition of Anna M. Szaflarski’s writing workshop, titled Morphogenesis. Morphogenesis is the cellular process that creates and determines form. Participants of the workshop are invited to take part in, as well as shape a choreography of exercises inspired by a blend of somatic, surrealist and dada writing exercises, improvised theatre, and for this occasion, the growth, movement and communication patterns found in nature. A cognitive space will form untethered from inhibition and pretension, allowing for the generation of text individually and collaboratively.

All are welcome! The workshop will be held in English, but fluency in the language is not necessary. There’s space for 15 participants, so sign up by sending an email to The workshop is free of charge.

That evening, 1646 will be open for Paul’s Background Evening. Paul will give a short introduction to the exhibition and later, Paul and Anna will talk about the workshop and about how Anna’s practice has informed Paul’s practice. Find more information on the Background Evening here!

The workshop takes place in our space on Thursday March 16th from 11:00 to 16:00.
