The Bauhaus curriculum was a codification of ‘the modern’ in a pedagogy that could produce the modern, regardless of style and outer form. The Neuhaus Summer School invites practitioners and thinkers to join the search for building blocks that could make up a ‘curriculum’ for what is sometimes called the ‘Anthropocene’. Or, to be more precise, to exemplify an ‘inner form’ for dying, learning, and living together as human/non-human beings. The summer school codifies and honours the present by searching for practices, institutions, artifacts and pedagogies, that (re)connect us to our environment in meaningful ways.
The school will build on, and run parallel to, the Neuhaus exhibition at the New Institute in Rotterdam. It will provide a learning environment for artists, designers, students, and thinkers that will benefit from the plurality that Neuhaus has to offer. it will develop a broader framework of thought, engagement, and action that will translate, amongst others, into a series of societal and artistic interventions performed by students..
