Organized by Brieana Ruais

Saturday School (SS) challenges participants with multidisciplinary classes that dissect, question, and illuminate various aspects of everyday life. SS is ongoing, continually inviting cultural producers who represent a variety of professional practices to participate in the temporary and nomadic teaching institution. Each instructor is asked to teach a course about something in which they are truly interested. Their lesson plans intersect many aspects of everyday life, their practices and their personal interests.

Cultural Hacking
Presented by Yucef Merhi

This course explores different ways of hacking our culture. The starting point will be the etymology of hacker and then we will make emphasis in how art and artists can contribute in expanding and increasing our social, political, and humanistic level of consciousness. The class will discuss and analyze some examples taken from diverse areas, including philosophy, science, filmmaking, and contemporary art.
