Are you also slowly starting to realize after all these years that your high school days were some of the best ones in your life? Well, we’re afraid to say that those days are never coming back, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make up for all those skipped classes and indulge in your field of interest once more. After a successfull series in May and June, we'll be returning with Het Klaslokaal starting November 2 with classes about subjects such as architecture, film, video art and graphic design.
How does it work? Starting November 2, we’ll be inviting a guest teacher every Wednesday from 20:00 to 21:00 to teach in Het Klaslokaal for seven weeks in a row. You can buy tickets online in our ticketshop for €10. These tickets will give you entry to the desired class plus an delicious authentic bowl of ramen noodles in Café DS before or after the class. Our advice is to be rather quick, because each class has limited space.
ABOUT LOUIS REITH
With an interest in printed matter, book design and craftsmanship artist Louis Reith creates drawings, collages, paintings and installations. The found material is always chosen by personal interest into form, theme and balance, which are then translated into new compositions. These compositions are made intuitively and refined consciously, playing with the illusion of mechanical versus handmade. Reith graduated from the AKI Academy for Arts and Design, Enschede in 2010 and lives in Amsterdam. He exhibits his work through international solo and group exhibitions. Besides his studio practise he also runs a small publishing house called Jordskred and he co-organises the annual Grafixx festival in Antwerp, Belgium. Schedule November 2 until December 14:
November 2 — Trends with Tessa Cramer — learning to predict and see trends
