This public discussion based on Artist Placement Group’s discursive format The Sculpture explores Education: Not Knowing. Inspired by APG’s working practices, I co-organised a Think Tank, we met several times at Chelsea College of Art and Design and decided to convene a Sculpture. Given the drive to instrumentalise all aspects of creative education, the possibility of ‘not knowing’ - inherent in APG’s formulation of the Open Brief- seems increasingly radical, subversive and productive. Education: Not Knowing was a vibrant afternoon of discussion and exchange unfolding through five key APG themes: Placement, Education, Not Knowing, The Contract and The Gallery.
Our intention, was not to dwell on the history of APG, but to reinstall its mutating DNA into the present.
