Hidden curriculum is the term used especially in critical pedagogy and defines the 'side effects' of school instruction. During the transfer of knowledge and skills of the formal curriculum, unintended behaviour models, opinions, social norms and ideologies are also transferred. Students subconsciously learn them and go on to use them at later stages of their lives. Thus, the hidden curriculum is not a fully conscious process and may reproduce existing inequality in society and hierarchical structures; but the awareness of it may also have affirmative, emancipative and transformational potential.

The vision of universal education for all to enable everyone to equally join the industrial mass production has lost its justification. In spite of this, schools continue to suppress the internal motivation to learn in students and education is degraded into an exercise in collecting grades with the aim to acquire a paper certifying its completion. Aberrations of biological laws, when instead of endorphins, adrenaline (stress instead of feelings of happiness) floods the brain when we study or work leave significant scars.

Can we imagine how our society would look if the educational model were based on mutual respect and democratic principles?

This exhibition project is based on a long-term curatorial research, which also involved discussions with local pedagogues, activists, academics working in the traditional school system, in alternative education and institutes of educational research. Besides the displayed artworks, the exhibition has a performative section consisting of courses, workshops, lectures and performances.
