Open Talk - Valerio Borgonuovo
"When Education Coincides with Life"
Friday, May 25th, 6h30 pm
Casino Padula, via dei Pesci angolo via del Leone
Back on the Friday of the Open Talk with the guest Valerio Borgonuovo who will address the topics of lifelong learning, self-therapy, do-it-yourself, presenting the first volume, out for Nero Edizioni, entirely dedicated to "Global Tools".
The talk will focus on some radical pedagogical references still little investigated within the experience of the Global Tools, a multidisciplinary experimental program of design education founded in 1973. Its technical-cultural aims will be analyzed during its theoretical and laboratory activities, as a school "without students and even teachers".
Particular attention will be paid to the practices and theories of figures such as Viktor Papanek, Ivan Illich, Stewart Brand, Paulo Freire, Riccardo Dalisi and experiences such as those of the Bauhaus Immaginista in Alba, the S-Space in Florence, laboratories in the Rione Traiano of Naples or of the Cavart group in the abandoned quarries of the Paduan area.
Valerio Borgonuovo is a researcher, curator and project manager with a post-graduate specialization in Neurosciences, Arts and Management of Culture at the TSM / Trentino School of Management.
