Open day, 12 May, 10m-1pm
no.w.here’s summer school A Lecture from Behind the Screen is a six-week programme that builds on our reputation as a vital community and site for the production, discussion and dissemination of practices engaged with the moving image, politics, technology and aesthetics. The no.w.here summer school is not interested in reproducing the structures, canons and learning models on offer in Higher Education; equally we are not an autonomous free school. Though no.w.here cannot operate outside the rampant privatisation of education we can provide a pedagogical environment that grounds itself on egalitarian, non-profit terms. A Lecture from Behind the Screen will offer participants a combination of theoretical seminars, one-on-one contact with tutors, student-led activities, field trips, guest workshops led by artists and theorists alongside an intensive programme of hands-on film and video making. These components are reliant upon and reflective of one another in a manner that allows practice to enlighten theory, collective experimentation to inform individual production.
