Continuing from their inaugural month at the Burrard Marina Field House, The School for Eventual Vacancy is hosting its 2nd Session—Counter-Attacks: Research and Rehearsal for Eventual Institutions over the month of June 2015. Session 2 will feature a wide range of rotating instructors with the underlying assumption that existing educational models and practices are an attack on the ways in which we want to live and learn–together. The session will explore themes of institutional practice, their limits, and their eventual outcomes through texts, discussions, counter-proposals, and public projects. Session 2 faculty include: Carla Stewart, Caitlin Chaisson, Lisa Novak, and Justin Langlois.
In addition to participating in each Instructor’s session, students will negotiate collectively how to spend the time in their own session and can expect the full participation of the Instructors. Each session will culminate in a publication that may include, but will not be limited to, a pamphlet, exhibition, book, documentary, walk, meal, demonstration, or event, designed to offer a sense of summary or closure to the activity. The School for Eventual Vacancy engages with an ongoing exploration of education as creative practice and political subjectivity. It tries to find the power to make itself unnecessary and vacant. It is open to anyone interested in graduate level discourse and production. It is an art school that has no interest in the current models of the art schools.
