Jointly presented by Rooftop Institute and Open School East, HK-based artist Morgan Wong‘s online live performance piece Journey looks into scenic imageries taken in rural China in the 1970s to connect oral history, archive, and teaching and learning. The performance will be premiered online on Monday, 26 Sep 2022 at 9PM (HK time) / 2PM (UK time), followed by a Q&A session with the artist. Book your place for free here.
Through the Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022 partnership, Open School East (UK) artist Hicham Gardaf and Rooftop Institute (HK) artist Morgan Wong embarked on a process of research, sharing of ideas and production of work that responds to the unexpected outcomes of teaching and pedagogical processes. They’ve focused their research on specific critical texts and used that research to inform development of their work.
Hicham Gardaf’s The Storyteller takes author and social activist Bell Hook’s reflections on language and teacher and educational philosopher Joseph Jacotot’s principles of “Intellectual Emancipation” as a starting point, exploring the themes of universal teaching, oral storytelling, and the limitations/possibilities of language.
Both Gardaf and Wong’s works will be available on the Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022 website during the online festival from 26 Sep – 9 Oct 2022.
Join the artists for an online discussion on these newly commissioned artworks as part of their collaborative commission Ways of Learning on Tue, 4 Oct 2022 at 5PM (HK time) / 10AM (UK time). Book your place for free here.
