Inspired by the Bauhaus, NASCHAUS transgenerational school is founded on three educational pillars: creativity, criticality, compassion. It is a space to cultivate resilience, adaptability, ambivalence, and absurdity.
This Open Day will feature a drop-in programme of engaging workshops, activities and tours, open to all ages, instilling values of critical thought and creative expression.
NASCHAUS is an educational environment for the twenty-first century, designed by students of the MA/MFA Art in the Contemporary World at NCAD.
Though 100 years apart, NASCHAUS, like the Bauhaus, aims to respond to the current moment of industrial change. In this age of information, we will consider technological advancement, automatization, and growing uncertainty in social, political, and economic systems.
An itinerant school that embraces short-termism, provisionality, and failure, NASCHAUS will occupy the Gallery for a single Open Day and then dissolve. Join this Open Day, pick up a prospectus, participate in their programme, and sign up for one of their exciting, non-existent courses.
