KUNCI invites you to discuss with Ruth Noack about the critical notion of study through resisting the fixed forms of school. Can we imagine different ways of organizing education outside of the dominant model? How to reimagine what we already know about school?

Noack is interested in learning about informal and formalised local practices of teaching art and hopes that people will contribute to the discussion with their ideas. In turn, she would like to talk to you about her vision of making a Museum in a School. This vision has developed out of her experience with both teaching and curating since the 1990s, with its drawbacks and its pleasures. But at the basis of her practice is the conviction that art has the capacity to make a kind of sense that we need in our lives. This is an attempt to rethink the relationship of the spheres of education and art with each other.

This event will be broadcasted online via Radio KUNCI, http://radio.kunci.or.id/
