Learning Through Art
By Georgie Manly
Up until the 29th March the Standpoint Gallery in Hoxton is exhibiting a project run by Vulpes Vulpes. The art collective that was founded in 2009 is showcasing the work of its current and alumni members, along with five others especially selected for the project. The theme, called Vorkus, means 'pre-course' in German, and is a course that all students at the Bauhaus school of Fine Arts take when first starting.
The artists involved in this project are all interested in the subject of education and learning, many of which are teachers in the field themselves. I for one had the pleasure to be taught by author, Paul Bailey, when I was at university. Other contributors include Edward Cotterill, Ruth Ewan, Georgie Manly, Anna Chrystal Stephens, Adam J B Walker, Carla Wright, and Adam Burton. They all represent education through different mediums, exploring standardisation of the curriculum and experimental learning. On the final day of the exhibit, there will be a free screening and discussion at 3pm.
