The Summer School of Unlearning is an educational initiative of beuys on/off, lead by Taeyoon Choi, Jung-Yeon Ma and Jaemin Shin, along with Gulnara Kasmalieva and Muratbek Djumaliev, Aigerim Kapar, with 15 participating artists from Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and South Korea.
The Summer School of Unlearning is a question about how we learn and what we learn. Joseph Beuys conceptualized the Free International University as ‘the plan for society beyond capitalism and communism.’ In a similar manner, the Summer School of Unlearning connects participating artists from East and Central Asia in an environment where they explore the possibility of building friendship despite the distance and cultural differences.
In the info session, Taeyoon Choi, Jung-Yeon Ma will discuss the progress so far, and engage in a conversation moderated by Jaemin Shin. The info session will be presented in Korean, with Japanese translation.
The Summer School of Unlearning’s participating artists will have a public presentation in late September.
