On Thursday 18 October, TENT and Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art present a joint evening programme that focuses on alternative forms of cultural transfer. Traditional education strategies are called into question in contributions from Vivian Sky Rehberg (on the invitation of Witte de With) and Sophie Krier (TENT). The evening kicks off with a lecture titled Deschooling / Deskilling by Vivian Sky Rehberg (program director Piet Zwart Institute), followed byartist/designer Sophie Krier who presents the project t.z.t.. The Authentic Boys present a publication and a performance that resulted from their youth project Rehearsing Revolution in TENT.
Transference has always been an important aspect in the way art is being received, but it is rather striking to see artists increasingly develop transfer models in their work over the recent years. Such is also the case of artist/designer Sophie Krier, who developed a youth project together with TENT, which distances itself from the pursuit of a quantifiable goal. During a period of three months, a group of youths worked in TENT without a predetermined goal; everything they encountered along the way could give rise to a new creative process.
In September last year the collective Authentic Boys presented Rehearsing Revolution in TENT, a project in which schoolchildren were incited to rebel against their own habits and exceed their limits. The project took the form of a scientific multiple-choice game, in which both ambitions and physical capacity were tested. The results of this study are compiled in the publication Rehearsing Revolution, which will be presented during this evening.
