November 6: Visible. Art as something else. A one year program around socially engaged artistic practices in a global context. Session 1: On Pedagogy
Visible. Office and Project space is pleased to announce its new program hosted at galerie de l'erg (école supérieure des arts, Brussels) looking at socially engaged artistic practices in a global context titled Art as something else. The program will unfold focusing on main overarching topics recognised as some of the existing red threads within the artists practices supported by and connected to the Visible project since its inception in 2010.
The first session of the program, On Pedagogy, is dedicated to new pedagogical models initiated by contemporary artists, and will open on Thursday 6 November at 6:30pm.
Mainly inspired by The Silent University project — recipient of the 2013 Visible Award — initiated by Kurdish artist from Turkey Ahmet Ögüt, this first platform aims at creating a deeper connection with the art academy that is hosting the Visible. Office and Project space, activating discussions from the perspective of existing educational models.
On the opening night we will host the first of three conversations with artists who have started educational platforms as artistic projects in recent times and the Silent University Orientation Module display. The panel will feature Emily Fahlen, Stockholm Silent University coordinator and Jonas Staal, artist and initiator of the New World Academy.
