Such schools experimented with self-organised education and were founded in response to the intellectual bankruptcy and spiritual emptiness of the approved educational establishment. They proposed courses that departed from the conservative educational programs and idealized the unrestricted development of thought. As the anti-universities reject conscious practices, Vasiljeva makes this idea of “un-learning” […]

Artist: Liudvikas Buklys Exhibition title: Rolling holders and windows Venue: Cortex Athletico, Paris, France Date: May 23 – June 21, 2014 Photography: Courtesy of Cortex Athletico Rolling holders and windows = a solo exhibition by Liudvikas Buklys = an articulated grouping of materials—a campsite for ideas.
