Visual artist’ is a term with untold interpretations, nuances, variations and meanings. But how, as an artist (or designer, photographer, or other ‘independent creator’), do you become who you are and who you would like to be? How can you guide your artistic practice, the main criterion being to answer the question: "where do I stand and what do I stand for?" Plan and Play, Play and Plan invites the artist to reach considerations, often based on analytical models, that will help to determine his/her position.

The programme at Camberwell is divided into three parts. First, Janwillem Schrofer will introduce the book in a short lecture. He will then conduct a short exercise from the book together with the public. Lastly, he will talk to three artists at different stages of their career about how they guide their own artistic practice.
