“The strength of the system and my experiences of it, was that in fact, oddly enought, it was actually a very collaborative enterprise already”, 2006 Video: 35 mins
The video shows a group of performers in a studio and seminar situation. Individually addressing the camera they offer personal views and experiences of their work as artists and eductors in the context of the art institution. The performance scripts originate from a series of interviews conducted by Susanne Clausen with different artist educators, who emphasise the collaborative, performative and subversive nature of teaching. These views may seems symptomatic for contemporary art practices, but are ultimately antagonistic to the ongoing commodification of the system of art education.
Based on interviews with Kaucyla Brooke, Brian Chatwin, Marcia Farquar, Michael Hauffen, Peter Suchin, Sari Tervaniemi.
Performed by Suzanne Bon, Mansel David, Anna Rogalska Hedlund, Bo Nierhaus, Rosi Oelkers, Alison Sandford-Mackenzie, Sabine Roseburg.
