A GENERAL NOTE
Briefly put, the LungA School is an independent, artist-led institution and situation where we experiment with artistic practice as a way of doing, thinking and being in order to cultivate, disturb, distort and transform our notions of aesthetics, learning, perception and good judgement.


THE PROGRAM

'84' is 84 days (8th of January 2018 to 31st of March 2018)

Just after the new year has greeted us and we have greeted it, we will all meet in a tiny corner on a big blue planet, one we think we know but that will most likely still surprise us.
While the darkness promise us that the light will come, we will use the dark days to explore unknown worlds and when the light finally comes, everything might be slightly different.

The program '84' moves through different stages. These are characterised by a difference in language, a difference in content and a difference in focus, but also by a similarity which allows for several cycles to occur during the program and several opportunities to revisit an idea or a medium in order to experience the changes in perception that occurs over time.

The stages occur chronologically, but are overlapping and seamlessly woven together so that the journey through them becomes one continous movement. We exist and explore in the space between clarity and madness. And you are most welcome to join.

SEYÐISFJÖRÐUR

We are based in Seyðisfjörður. A mystical village between throning mountains. A place where everything is possible. With bright summers, dark winters, beautiful nature and even more important, distance from the rest of the world. This gives an opportunity for deeper focus, inspiration and thorough experimentation.
Seyðisfjörður has for many years been a hub for artists and other creatives, and it is the setting for many cultural initiatives all year round.
The LungA School facilities are placed all around the town and the students will create open events and exhibitions during the program and take part in the community in many ways.


A FEW EXTRA NOTES
I
The school has become and is still becoming. And in this process of becoming it is not only transforming itself and being transformed, it is also radically altering it's own foundation as well as everyone involved. Seyðisfjörður is not the same. The students do not remain the same. We are certainly not the same. And the school has never been anything other than these constant transformations. This wonderful, living activity which escapes definition in order to be alive.

II
A program here is a composition, a set of arranged circumstances, notes on a string. Each note is in its right place, which could be any place, but then again, it could not. It is where it is. These circumstances have a beginning, but each of them unfold in largely unpredictable ways, filling out the empty space between the notes, creating a totality in the performance of a composition. And each performance is different from the other, though it is easy to recognize the composition as being a particular composition and not some other.
We are conscious while we surrender to unfamiliar logics.

III
Contemporary art education must become an integrated, conscious, social practice of creating environments of experimentation while at the same time dissolving the boundaries of the institution. Art is not a spectacle removed from the viewer, but an integrated experience of the lives we live.

Here, teaching and learning becomes performative practices that calls for aesthetic appreciation, consideration and alteration.
