NeuLab, a Different Learning Environment

Willem de Kooning Academy
Tue 2 Apr

In May-September 2019 Het Nieuwe Instituut and Willem de Kooning Academy present and invite you for:

Neuhaus-NeuLab Expo and Student Activities

From 19 May, during the course of four months, Het Nieuwe Instituut will host Neuhaus, a temporary and transdisciplinary academy for more-than-human knowledge. Neuhaus reacts to the current era's planetary burnout with a multifaceted curriculum in the spirit of the Bauhaus.

Within Neuhaus, the Willem de Kooning Academy has intensively collaborated with the Education Department of Het Nieuwe Instituut to facilitate a different learning environment: NeuLab, where visitors and students will be able to work with more than human knowledge. In a lab setting, you are able to explore and investigate your relationship with plants, animals, things, machines and AI. NeuLab is a do-it-yourself activity – a workspace, where the relationships are examined and experienced by doing and making. Which experiments help us to reconstruct and re-imagine the world?

This NeuLab is created in collaboration with alumni, students and tutors of the WdKA: Aldje van Meer, Franciska Wierenga, RNUL (Aart Muis, Rob Donkers), World Wider Web (Erik Overmeire), Hackers&Designers (Anja Groten), Arthur Boer & Boris Smeenk.
