Paul Stewart and John Reardon will collaborate on building a Workshop that explores the proliferation of alternative schools, universities and institutions and what it means to be called an ‘alternative’ when it still operates within ‘the system’, within a logic of neoliberalism.
The Workshop will look at existing models and alternative organisations, and explore whether they mirror current structures and maybe have more of an alternative curriculum rather than an alternative pedagogy?
The event will make connections between art-practice and art-learning. Through breakout and collaborative making-sessions we will offer a series of provocations and challenges to these questions in the form of physical, malleable, performative, tactile and manually-focused things. The Workshop will be shaped by the work of Ivan Illich, and Paulo Freire as well as ideas developed by Stewart through the Alternative Art College and Reardon through ARTSCHOOL/UK.
Paul Stewart is an Artist, Curator and Writer based in London and Middlesbrough. He is the founder of the Alternative Art College, a PhD Candidate by Practice at Teesside University and a Digital Fellow at mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art), curating the situation unit commissions (April – Sept 2015).
John Reardon is interested in how art is made public and how a public(s) is constituted through art. His work – in the form of single and co-authored work, work under a shared name or title, as well as anonymous work – includes objects, events, performances and publications. He is Artist in Residence in the Politics Department at Goldsmiths where he teaches part time as co-convener of the MA Art & Politics (practice)
This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival 10-16 June 2017
