Reinvent the ordinary
25.08. – 04.09.2019
book the summerschool experience
Triale embraces the experiment, the effects of serendipity through trial and error and the educational benefits of project oriented learning. The summer camp offers a range of corresponding experiments that aim to reinvent traditionally evolved cultural techniques by adding a modern perspective or technology.
The center of the discourse lies embedded in nature, away from comfort zones and urban infrastructure: Campus Maria Lankowitz in the mountains close to Graz, Austria offers a perfect non-infrastructure for the reinvention of the ordinary. It is a testing environment for ongoing investigations where ideas can elaborate to become rituals, products, or even jobs of the close future.
You may explore and develop your personal projects in this context or take part in our collective research experiments.
Please read the practical information about this format.
