Revisting Black Mountain College: Cross-disciplinary Experiments and Their Potential for Democratization (in Times of Post-Democracy)
The Master Class Summer Workshops are embedded in the exhibition and events project Revisiting Black Mountain. The project explores what an experimental, transdisciplinary production of art/music/theater/design could mean and make happen at the Zurich University of the Arts. The central idea is to initiate an intensive investigation into the model of Black Mountain College and to transfer this to a contemporary art university. These reformulated practices will be shown, performed, discussed and exhibited.
