Synecdoche, HEAD" aims to cultivate an art school within the HEAD–Genève through various participatory art projects and transpedagogy. Anchored by the Mycordyceps protocol, the project embraces a compelling synthesis of transpedagogy, ecology, and speculative fabulation. This venture, brought to life in cooperation with Vanessa Urben (La Compagnie du Comptoir), encompasses a wide variety of curated participatory activities, including a fermentation café, a thought-provoking quiz on planetary concerns, food rescue workshops, culinary fermentation lessons, and a welcoming, bio-sourced, vegan, and gluten-free, 'prix libre' of 'bouffe pop' open to the public on both days of the Grand Tour.
In addition, "Synecdoche, HEAD" lays out a tangible plan for creating a participatory, critical, ecological, and experimental art school within the framework of HEAD–Genève. This vision foresees the evolution of an alternate, forward-looking art school dedicated to organic material workshops. This envisioned 'Mockstitution' would operate independently of the current school's administrative jurisdiction, offering a fresh perspective to the community.
With a focus on reshaping the fields of art and pedagogy, the ideas presented in "Synecdoche, HEAD" aspire to spread widely and flourish in the fertile minds of art institutions, much like spores in the air.
