We try to plan it so perfectly is a three-day congress examining the discourse of Art and The Young Public. It offers a vast field of questions that spans over different knowledge domains and where aesthetical, cultural, political, social visions and different outlooks on man are negotiated. To encircle and identify the extensive and complex field of questions, the conceptual principal inquiry is the school as an institution. The framework clarifies the questions, and enables the discussion to shed light on the structural as well as the individual dimensions, and their intertwining connections and mutual effect on each other.

The congress program presents the core curriculum of the school, whereby artists, curators, educators, official servants, politicians, philosophers, scientists and young people presents varied themes, that involves issues of contemporary art, culture, education and society and its future development in different forms such as panel debates, exhibition, lectures, performances, workshops.

The congress is structured as an equivalent dramaturgy where; art works, group discussions, performance lectures, workshops as well as the contributors and participators are placed on an equal footing during the event, to enable different view points emerge in an active meaning production in yet not known knowledge field.

Based on the event a range of the participators will present in-depth reflections on the congress debates, in essay formats and artistic contributions for a forthcoming publication. The publication is due late fall 2011.

Include Kjersti Andvig, Tarek Atoui, Marcus Coates, Per Formo, Melanie Gilligan, Emma Kay, Eemil Karila, Katarina Löfström, Audun Mortensen, Cirpian Muresan, Dan Perjovschi, Anders Smebye, Helene Sommer, Magnus Thorén, Magnus Wallin, Unnar Örn.
