Annette Krauss: Hidden Curriculum is a project that looks at unintended and unrecognised forms of knowledge that are part of learning processes and daily life within schools.
Working with two groups of 15–17 year old students from local schools in a series of workshops, videos have been produced that look at the invisible values and beliefs that accompany official learning processes, and the informal knowledge and normalisation processes that influence the way we know, see and act in the world.
On 26 June – 28 July 2012 these videos were exhibited in the exhibition (in)visibilities.
This project was commissioned as part of Communal Knowledge which is generously supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, John Lyon’s Charity, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Arts Council England, Westminster Cultural Olympiad supported by Westminster City Council, BNP Paribas and Vital Regeneration, The Showroom Supporters Scheme, and Outset as The Showroom’s Production Partner 2012.
(in)visibilities was produced in the framework of COHAB, a two-year project with Casco, Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht and Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm, supported by a Cooperation Measures grant from the European Commission Culture Programme (2007-2013)
Collaborators: Quintin Kynaston School, Paddington Academy and Lily Keal
