A Wandering Symposium
By Cyril de Menouillard

The Master/Student hierarchical transmission of knowledge practised in many art schools is clearly unproductive and history shows there is many other solutions. Within the specific context of the Wandering School, we would like to take one afternoon to self reflect on our actions; the Dirty Art Department was created, appreciating the history of radical school projects — from Steiner to Bauhaus, Black Mountain College to Global Tools, and the contemporaries of United Nations Plaza, Bruce High Quality Foundation and Mountain School of Art — to challenge the norms by which we live and thus produce reality.

This afternoon is devised to be not just a new argument on the Master/Student dichotomy, but a moment to recognise novel approches towards education both inside and outside conventional institutions, thanks to the generous participation of a large panel of professionals from various fields. Many of the experiments do not only create new spaces of learning within or without the institution, but also tend to engage with the specific sites — urban or digital environment in which they are situated.

The symposium will hopefully attempt to rethink the relation between the practice of education and the space of the school as its typical institutional setting as well as the new conditions that are offered by the technological revolution. What are the boundaries of theses newly created spaces, and how can these be renegotiated?

The Architecture of the Macao palazzo will serve as a metaphorical round table, around the inner balcony, looking down into the Main Hall, as a way to tackle during this symposium its usual format to emphazise this liberty of action. A set of simple rules will also be unveiled on the day of the symposium to support the proceedings of the discussion. Every participant will be invited to talk equally to share their insights on the educational/pedagogical system, not stricly related to the art/design world. We also invite the audience to actively engage in discussion at any time. All points of view are welcome!
The symposium will be held in English.

The Wandering Symposium is a proposition by Valentina Ciuffi, Cyril de Menouillard, Jerszy Seymour and Raoul Zoellner

The Dirty Art Department presents ‘The Wandering School’

The Wandering School is a continuous performance and life situation. It is open to dangerous attempts at how to organise itself and how to give and receive knowledge. From April 1 – 17 current and previous students of the Dirty Art Department will meet Macao – an unvarnished, occupied palazzo on a former meat trade site in the east of Milan – as their frame of action.

The Wandering School runs as a series of events, interacting with the community of Macao and the local and international public for the Design Week and MiArt. Taking inspiration from radical schools and self-contained communities the school will exist as a reality in itself – a place to sleep and dream, reflect and rave in. All as a living experimentation which is allowed to wander through its own success and failure.

The Wandering School is a project by the Dirty Art Department in collaboration with Macao and is initiated by Erasmus Scherjon, Stephane Barbier Bouvet, Valentina Ciuffi, Anita Silva, Emanuele Braga and Jerszy Seymour.

The Dirty Art Department is a Masters program of the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. It is an open space for all possible thought, creation and action – a place to build objects or totems, revolutions or business models. The Dirty Art Department finds itself flowing between the pure and the applied and aims to create new realities to reconsider our life situation on this planet. It is directed by Jerszy Seymour, co-founded together with Catherine Geel, Clemence Seilles and Stephane Barbier Bouvet and conducted with Daniel Dewar, Noam Toran, Saâdane Afif and Florence Parot.

Macao is an independent center for art, culture and research in Milan which is coordinated by an open assembly of artists and activists. The initiative started with the occupation of an abandoned skyscraper in the city center and is now based on a former meat trade site in the east of Milan. Macao aims to conceive new ideas of what a cultural institution can be beyond its traditional understanding while presenting a cross-sectorial cultural program and researching on labour conditions in cultural production.
