Teacher Has Left the Building

Part of: Sensorium


The professors and students of the project Parallel School will discuss alternate forms of education which would allow for a more effective exchange of ideas, fostering experimentation, development and expansion.
Participants in the discussion will speak about their personal experience with education – the books, films, and people who had an influence on them and their work. Particular attention will be given to French philosopher Jacques Ranciere’s book The Ignorant Schoolmaster, Vitold Gombrovic’s novel Ferdydurke, and the film En rach?chant, by Jean-Marie Straub and Dani?le Huillet.

The discussion will be followed by a screening of two films:

– Symbiopsychotaxiplasm, directed by William Greaves, USA, 1968.
