A couse partisipant’s project by: Iris Lacoudre and Jennifer Heinfeld
Correspondence is a discursive platform for artists, thinkers and makers to openly discuss their work processes, methodologies and tools. Beginning initially as a dialogue between peers, a publication manifested from those inceptive conversations, focusing on the invisible support to creative practice. Each collaborator is invited to discuss a past or current project, a theoretical approach, or pieces from their work, through their tools and process. As a collection of independent articles, Correspondence encourages different ways to think, focusing on how rather than what. It gathers mistakes, doubts, naivety, unexpected discoveries, imperfections, failures, drafts and uncertainties, to create a support structure for all involved.

Iris Lacoudre (FR/SE) and Jennifer Heinfeld (US/SE) began their collaboration firstly with friendship, discussion and time. As architects and makers, they found reciprocity in their dialogue, challenging their own pedagogies and questioning the contemporary practice of their field. In August 2014, they left their respective architecture practices and moved to Dessau, Germany to participate in a collaborative research initiative through the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau. After three months of research and the conclusion of their work into a designed and curated exhibition, they returned to a place neither their homeland, to Stockholm, Sweden. In January 2015, they began a new working method and process at Konstfact, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design.
