“Exploding the University is a Summer School for people interested in design’s critical, social and political potential.
Inspired by the history of radical learning and informal education — from Greenham Common to Bauhaus, Black Mountain College to the Black Panther Movement, Bristol Construction School to the Workers’ Education Movement- its long- term aim is to create a community of designers who come together occasionally.” – EtU
I attended the summer school in the heart of Wales with 24 other like minded designers, writers, thinkers came together to explore the themes of cooperation and resilience. Given current climates this was a place where we could be free and creative to ask questions and explore answers. What can we learn from nature especially lichen?
J&Y were asked to art direct a group portrait, think Bauhaus/black mountain school class photos…
So we made a giant human cats cradel…..obviously
