Event Description

Norman Potter co-founded the Construction School, an experimental design course at the West of England College of Art in Bristol, in 1964. His bold programme encouraged collaboration between disciplines, but encountered resistance at every level of the educational institution. Potter’s 1974 play, In:quest of Icarus, is a complex and allegorical reflection on these experiences, concerned with “walls, barriers, both of languages and hardware.”

Designer James Langdon here works with students from the University of the West of England to stage the work. The performance is followed by a discussion and accompanied by a presentation of material from the Construction School archive.

Artist Susanne Kriemann presents Modelling (Construction School), new work created in response to the archive, at Arnolfini, 4 May to 7 July.
