As an additional module of the “Art of Hacking” exhibition program, the Artlab R&D and the educational departments have developed and produced a workshop titled “Re/Think Re/Design”. Funded by the Amsterdams fonds voor de kunst (AFK), the workshop focused on the ethical and philosophical background of hacking culture and it involved 4 classes of high school students from the Amsterdam’s Montessori Lyceum, on Monday 7 and Thursday 10 November 2011.
The report highlights the concepts of the workshop, followed by a theoretical background referencing contents and underlying educational values and concludes with a field report including impressions and feedback.
