For a school of tomorrow, we want to create an environment that is above all joyful and positive, where students are accepted, respected, challenged, where beyond constructive criticism they receive encouragement. Where students are neither put in boxes, nor judged. Where students can express themselves openly and simply. Where they are taught autonomy and independence without being abandoned, where they are accompanied and supported in their projects and in their dreams. Where students not only have the right to go against canons, traditions, conventions and norms, but where they are encouraged to do so. Where other forms of knowledge than theoretical are also considered and taught. Perception, empathy, emotions, intuitions.
Personal stories, life experiences.
In the school of tomorrow teachers do not tell students what to think, what to believe in, but open "doors" for them and offer them a multitude of possibilities, knowledge, tools, ways of doing and ways of seeing things. Teachers do not take advantage of the young age and the extreme sensitivity of the students to influence them, to transmit to them their personal convictions and struggles. Rather they teach them critical thinking, doubt and skepticism.
Open-mindedness, curiosity, empathy.
This school would then be human, warm, and generous.
This school is going to raise students, teach them to trust in themselves, believe in themselves, be themselves.
This school will make students become authentic, sincere and courageous.
That’s how they will face the world.
"Born in Budapest (Hungary), in 1983, and graduated from the ENSAPC Art School (France) in 2016, I am working with art as a means of connection and with education as a means of activism. I am making full evening pieces and short-format performances, holding multi-sensorial political soft-spaces, creating immersive choreographic experiences, and building rebellious communities. In the past 8 years, I dreamed up the School of Disobedience, founded an artist collective then my own performance art company (Gray Box), launched an annual festival (Wildflowers), exhibited in a toilet, performed in a boxing ring, curated in an elevator, gave lectures in a techno club, run classes in a hammam... I like everything that is unusual, unexpected, and nonconformist. I am not kind with assholes and learned how to follow my own path. I think the party is outside the canon."
