This video shows a group of students from Amsterdam’s Dirty Art Department who created interactive installations to occupy a building in an abandoned area in Milan during the city’s design week (+ slideshow).
Called The Wandering School, the event references self-contained communities, as sleeping, parties and film nights are all hosted in one space that was formerly a slaughterhouse.
The space belongs to Macao – an independent centre for art, culture and research in Milan, which is coordinated by an open assembly of artists and activists.
The initiative started with the occupation of an abandoned skyscraper in the city centre, and is now based to the east.
Located at Viale Molise 68, the event is open to both the community of Macao, as well as those attending Milan design week and contemporary art fair MiArt.
Dezeen is a media partner for the event that runs from 1 to 17 April 2016, and will see projects by students from the Dirty Art Department, a masters program of the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.
