HIDDEN CURRICULUM at tranzit.sk
The hidden curriculum usually encompasses the side effects of school instruction. This exhibition focuses on the educational system and its impact on society and its individuals - on schooling. In the transfer of knowledge and skills, education, as presently established by the traditional school system, is basically about learning the proper work ethic and adapting to the hierarchical structure of society. So, if we talk about freedom at work, we must also talk about freedom in education and in this connection, open themes such as disciplining, respecting authority instead of critical thinking, and the teaching of individualism and competitiveness as opposed to cooperation as the work of the future. We must also discuss such problems as segregation, the widening of social differences, and inclusive and empathetic education. Would our society be different if our educational system were based on democratic and respectful principles?
This exhibition also has a performative section consisting of courses, workshops, lectures and performances. It is based on three underlying lines: the un-learning of standpoints and assumptions which we acquire at school; the approximation of concepts such as de-schooling, radical pedagogy and democratic education; and lastly, reflections on the current situation and attempts at reforming the educational system in Slovakia.
