Hide and Seek
By Joséphine Péguillan

Hide and Seek is a series of hand printed curtains to be installed in the main hall of Macao. These curtains can be attached at different points, rolled up and unfurled, giving the main hall a dynamic and inviting space for all events and activities taking place over the Wandering School residency. The patterns painted on these curtains are reminiscent of Italian majolica and faenza tiles while incorporating contemporary pop-culture and african wax fabric references.

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.
