On view | “Really Useful Knowledge”, group show with Carla Zaccagnini and Runo Lagomarsino

(Madrid, Spain) In a reference to the long-forgotten class struggles of early capitalism, the title of the exhibition suggests an inquiry into “really useful knowledge” from a contemporary perspective. The exhibition endeavours to position the notion of critical pedagogy as a crucial element in collective struggles, and explore the tension between individual and social emancipation through education with examples that are both historical and current, and their relation to organisational forms capable of leading unified resistance to the reproduction of capital.

For her part, Lucia Koch presents “Mood Disorder”, comprising 23 variously sized sheets of glass and acrylic painted with color gradients. They filter the exhibition space natural light and thus create a sense of drama or “mood”on the floors and walls.
