DEPARTMENT OF EXTENSION


Extending towards an otherwise

OPEN DAY


TUESDAY APRIL 2

KINGSTON SCHOOL OF ART


10:00–17:00

KPTK402 (Tower Block)



In the classroom, studio, lecture hall or seminar, the teacher may refer to the space beyond the school’s assumed boundaries as the ‘real world’, the school’s reality then contested. In such a dispute, we are implicit in the creation of a binary.


The Department of Extension is an unreal school. Its students, if only temporarily, enrol to imagine ‘otherwise’. At its inaugural open day, the Department pools together prospective students to unfold discussion and workshops on the school's (un)realities.

The Department hopes to cross-pollinate participants with interests (and optional experience) across design, art, architecture and writing.


In light of—and in spite of—the commercialized UK art school, Department of Extension will enact possible alternatives through a speculative archaeology.
