A School of Schools: Transcending the Bauhaus

9 July 2018 and I am (not) a monster

by Nelly Ben Hayoun

As part of the School of Time exhibition that Z33 is preparing for the Istanbul Design Biennial coming up in September, we’re happy to reveal some of the first ideas and steps towards a new project, I am (not) a Monster, by designer Nelly Ben Hayoun. Throughout this research project Nelly Ben Hayoun intends to demonstrate the state of ideologies- their origins, formulation and power structures- in contemporary society. Trained by Noh theatre and Kabuki’s experts and Sumotoris in Japan, with Bunraku puppets in hand, Nelly Ben Hayoun will reenact and question the writings of Hannah Arendt while talking to philosophers and families about their views on the role of learning and education in society today. In this first of two blog posts, she gives us some insight on how this project came into being. Read more »
