LungA School

Briefly put, the LungA School is an independent, artist-led (and student-led) institution and situation where we experiment with artistic practice as a way of doing, thinking and being in order to cultivate, disturb, distort and transform our notions of aesthetics, learning, perception and good judgement.

Just after the new year has greeted us and we have greeted it, we will all meet in a tiny corner on a big blue planet, one we think we know but that will most likely still surprise us.

While the darkness promise us that the light will come, we will use the dark days to explore unknown worlds and when the light finally comes, everything might be slightly different.

We exist and explore in the space between clarity and madness. And you are most welcome to join.

A programme here is a composition, a set of arranged circumstances, notes on a string. Each note is in its right place, which could be any place, but then again, it could not. It is where it is. These circumstances have a beginning, but each of them unfold in largely unpredictable ways, filling out the empty space between the notes, creating a totality in the performance of a composition. And each performance is different from the other, though it is easy to recognize the composition as being a particular composition and not some other.

Currently the program is 84 days and therefore simply called "84."

84 is the name given to a period of time which can be characterised as being something in between an act of art and a school and neither and both and more.

84 is a composition for a performance. The performance of a school. Or: the performance as a school. Or: the school, performed.

The programme 84 moves through different stages. These are characterized by a difference in language, a difference in content and a difference in focus, but also by a similarity which allows for several cycles to occur during the program.

The stages occur chronologically, but are overlapping and seamlessly woven together so that the journey through them becomes one continuous movement.

During the programme, besides the individual and collective studio practice, there will be approx 15 guest artists that will be conducting workshops, experiments, investigations and conversations with the participants.


The application process consist of both an application form and a Skype conversation. After filling out the application form you will be invited for a conversation shortly after.
