This project brings together work from artists for whom education and learning are subjects of investigation. Through the processes and methodologies of art-making, workshops and participatory discussions, traditional and alternative ideas of education are explored. The exhibition is comprised of sculpture, print, performance and text.

Vorkurs is the name of the preliminary course undertaken by every student at the Bauhaus, the educational philosophies that informed the course have had an impact on the way we think about knowledge and learning both in the arts and wider society. Methods used on the Vorkurs course, seen as radical at the time are now incorporated into mainstream art education*. Similarly, the tension between open, experimental learning approaches and the standardisation and assessed outcomes of a curriculum remain relevant.

The artists and workshop facilitators involved in this project also work in arts education; leading sessions in public and independent art institutions, teaching in state and private schools, or running informal workshops in artist led spaces and community centres. Over the course of the exhibition workshops will be held with school children and college students from the local area. There will also be a Library of related reading and media.
