Project 17 Sep 2007-18 Nov 2007

Involving the participation of students from the Rietveld College (Utrecht) and Amadeus Lyceum (Utrecht) 
Open to the public Tuesday – Sunday, 12.00-18.00 
Workshops Tuesday/Friday, 14.00-16.00 
‘Hidden Curriculum’ looks at the unrecognized and unintended knowledge, values and beliefs that are part of the learning process in schools. It focuses on actions that go beyond existing norms and shows creative and productive ways of navigating through everyday life in school. The project is currently being realized through a series of workshops with two groups of 16-17 year old students from the Rietveld College and Amadeus Lyceum in Utrecht. The workshops will set a framework in which the students will investigate their own actions and forms of behaviour and transfer the knowledge gained from their investigations towards other ends, such as the production of printed material, video and public actions. Activating situations that may go beyond common sense or secure behaviour, they will reflect on the legitimacy of specific social contexts, taking a critical stance in order to think through the complexity of their own actions.  
In a broader context the project forms a model of how institutional structures are negotiated in all areas of public life, thinking about how people deal with rules and and imposed categories of thought, and both internalise them as well as subconsciously resist them.  
‘Hidden Curriculum’ will be developed over three months and is open to the public throughout with a continuously developing body of documentation and special events. The final outcomes of the project will be presented in a screening, and will be on view at Casco during the last week of the project.
