SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE BY CANDY CHANG

On the 8th of February we found ourselves at Onassis Cultural Center at the opening of Candy Chang’s exhibition.

Candy Chang is an artist, designer, and urban planner who explores making cities more comfortable and contemplative places. She believes in the potential of introspection and collective wisdom in public space to improve our communities and help us lead better lives.

Τhis project is all about 3 different experiments that will be presented gradually in 3 separate exhibitions where Chang encourages people “to engage with public spaces and let their voice be heard”.

The first exhibition is under the title “School of the future”. From 8 February until 6 March the classroom is reinterpreted without teachers, books and classmates. “Visitors find themselves in a space with a school desk at one end surrounded by thousands of big, red balloons. They are invited to write down a lesson life has taught them in a notebook on the desk. In so doing, the visitors become teachers and students at one and the same time: by taking part in a school of collective experience in which the shared encyclopedia of knowledge consists of the lessons of their individual lives, they can teach but they can also learn”.
