wideopenschool.com: 100 International Artists Reinvent School

Made during
Jeremy Deller's & Ed Hall’s
Banner Making Workshop
The Hayward Gallery’s Wide Open School is an unusual experiment in learning. Its programme of classes is devised and delivered by over 100 artists from approximately 40 different countries. It is not an art school however. Instead it is a wide-ranging forum where artists – including Jeremy Deller, Yael Bartana, Marlene Dumas, Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Bob and Roberta Smith, Jalal Toufic and Thomas Hirschhorn – lead and facilitate workshops, collaborative projects, collective discussions, lectures and performances about any and all subjects in which they are passionately interested. Subjects will take in cloud architecture, Freddie Mercury, deep space, and sex in the colonies.

 Visit: wideopenschool.com. The project ran from Juny 11 till July 11, 2012.
