Mass (D)istruction

By and with Roberta De Santis and Delia Rimoldi

Scuòla, (lat. schŏla, from gr. σχολή) originally meant free and pleasant use of one’s strength,regardless of any practical need or purpose. Today, school has drastically changed its role from a place of critical thinking training to the antechamber of working life, and in accordance with this it is transformed. Everything must have utility and immediate expendability in the world of work. This counter-utopia is narrated through the rambling lectures and personal events of a new-generation teacher who scurries to conform to the new “corporate philosophy” and a colleague with equally bizarre nineteenth-century methods. Mass (D)istruction, through surreal and ironic language, stages the school of today, representing the school of yesterday and tomorrow.
