    Abstract

    The Ignorant Art School: Sit-in Curriculum #2

    2 December 2021 – 19 February 2022

    Sit-in Curriculum #2 was a public event series that situates the archival material and artworks within The Ignorant Art School Sit-in #2 exhibition as critical stimuli and generative points of departure for an open space for collaborative and revolutionised learning facilitated by artists, activists, designers, educators, performers, and writers.

    Indexed by Stuart Hall’s theorisation of the ‘politics of articulation’ in which culture is not fixed but always subject to negotiation and struggle, Sit-in Curriculum #2 sets out to challenge hegemonical narratives and celebrate grassroots knowledge.

    Sit-in Curriculum #2 culminated in an international symposium, 12 Hour Sit-in Revel that featured 29 UK and international contributors including Prof. Regina Bittner (the Deputy Director and Head of Research of Bauhaus Dessau), Grant Watson (co-curator of Bauhaus Imaginasta,) Gudskul, the educational platform of rangrupa a Jakarta based art collective who curated Documenta 15 in Kassel, Serubiri Moses (New York based Ugandan writer and curator, co-curator of the 10th Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art).
