Nelly Ben Hayoun launches
The University of the Underground
Nelly Ben Hayoun is launching a provocative new university to meet these controversial times.
A university that is bold, ambitious and impolite.
The University of the Underground is made of creative soldiers, young designers of experiences who can infiltrate power structures, digital and scientific ecosystems and modify them through music, film, design, theatrical practices and politics.
It is the worlds first postgraduate university based within a hidden network of urban spaces and provides a 2 year MA in Design with 50% of the course taking place in London and the other 50% in Amsterdam.
"The University of the Underground exists at the nexus between critical design, experiential, theatrical, filmic, political and musical practices and it results in the design of experiences." Nelly Ben Hayoun
The University of the Underground supports forms of deviance in creativity, the non-established and the unconventional, revolutionary practices, theatre of cruelties and musical concerts will be celebrated as we manufacture countercultures, radios, pirates utopias and experiences for power shifts.
Nelly Ben Hayoun is calling for all the Willy Wonkas of modern times, the contemporary Velvet Underground's and the Joy Division's, action researchers and designers, mythologists and makers of new worlds!
The aim is to teach students how to engineer situations, social actions and power shifts within institutions, companies and governments. The University of the Underground promotes unconventional collages of references, interdisciplinary practices, chaos and experimentations at the start of any creative processes.
The University of the Underground is lead by a multidisciplinary team of 'dreamers of the day', who believe that a positive inspiration and disturbance to the current cultural and educative system is required to best support the young generations in their creative and political endeavours.
Nelly is recruiting creative soldiers from today (2nd Feb) until the 1st April 2017.
