THIS CLASS WILL BE GIVEN IN ENGLISH
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 THE CLASS
"If human beings were playing cards, I would not be the mighty King nor the elegant 7 of diamonds; and certainly not the talented Ace. I would be instead the Joker: not for its ability to become each and every card, but rather for the inability of being just one card". This is how Lorenzo De Rita describes himself.
Founder of The Soon Institute - an R&D lab where a collective of social scientists studies new forms of communication and develop experimental models for the society of the near future - Lorenzo have lived in many places and been different Lorenzo throughout time: first poet, then graphic designer, botanist, writer, professional table tennis player, book publisher, inventor, and recently visiting professor at the Polytechnic of Turin where he teaches "Ideas Engineering".
In Het Klaslokaal, Lorenzo will expose his theories on the Phosphorescent Thinking, a philosophy developed at The Soon Institute to favor an innovative mentality in thinkers of all sort of creative fields.
