Music by Like A Tim
Jordi Ferreiro is an artist and educator who sees no distinction between his two chosen disciplines. His projects mediate the relationship between the artist, the audience, and the museum through strategies based on participation, play, and estrangement. They include choreographed tours, passive performances, interactive audiotours, social sculptures, hyperfiction, installations, and quite a few kilos of gold confetti.
In his spare time, Jordi Ferrerio studies information transfer methodologies and educational movements that lie outside the norm. For this conversation, he has organised them according to three basic criteria: the space, the participants, and the methodology. To a greater or lesser extent, each of the case studies interrupts the usual structure and relations that are set up in the classroom. Through anomalous, subaltern, experimental projects such as the University of Trees, the Outdoor Painting Schools in Mexico, a Zaragoza-based origami group, the Escola Catalana del Tapís, and the German forest schools, Jordi Ferreiro shares practical examples that operate around play, performativity, and horizontality.
