‘Three Uses of the Knife’ is a series of bi-weekly meetings with experienced writers, editors, critics and thinkers. It is aimed at young writers at the beginning of their careers, for young editorial initiatives, for artists interested in writing and publishing, as well as for the speakers, who were invited to revisit the genres, forms, functions and strategies of contemporary art writing and criticism. The title of the series is borrowed from David Mamet’s book Three Uses of the Knife: On the Nature and Purpose of Drama.
