    This is an event-based module, which examines the role of text in art, performance, installations, and
    public spaces in the city - specifically London. The primary focus is always the analysis of words and
    texts, how they are used to revise old stories, to tell new stories, to explain, to celebrate, to underline,
    to persuade, to enhance the environment. Beyond that the premise of the module will be to open out into
    questions about the presentation of art objects, the function of the word in the everyday, the
    exploitation of texts in performance, the relation between words and other art forms of communication.
