Draft Schedule

On our first meeting on the first day we’ve made these first decisions.


 starting breakfast at 8:30 am and starting the course at 9:00 am
 short breaks and early end
 if you can’t be present, please do let us know in advance. Thanks!

 we have to decide whether to do a classical examination with written questions and answers or with presentations [1]
 if you do a presentation you’re entitled to have externals to help you out at this crucial moment (you should announce their names beforehand to the school)

Study Remarks:

 everybody may discuss in a first round his or her own favorite topic to be presented on the final day of the course
 if you do a presentation you may pick a topic of your personal interest
 you are allowed to invite other class-members to join in presenting this topic.


How difficult is it to really see what the video is presenting:

 by Aleksandra M.: the invisible gorilla

 by Daena K.: Test Your Awareness : Whodunnit?

Do pick a "Dinking-Video" for yourself out of one of these categories:

 By universities, scholars, thinkers, ...
 By business intermediates
 By companies
 By reporters, filmmakers, artists...

Working on this list took me several hours up to midnight - and even longer.
This and the whole day reflecting on design ideas about X-Mas had a stunning effect.
The next early morning I woke up remembering the final part on a dream.

We were a whole group of young people, man and women, who gathered on a first floor balcony type wooden house, getting up and looking for place to shower. So we all gathered looking for a free shower. Some of us did not find one right away, because we were more people than spots.
One of us, a younger women, was sitting aside and doing simple knitting work. She "embroided" white underwear trousers with her name in red: clean, simple, impressive work. "When I do a whole series of them and sell them as a set, I can bring the money home and buy some stuff of impotance for me" she said. The name replicated several times on each underwear was "WESTWOOD".

This is the story.
Looking back to its origins feeding these images, here are some references, the more recent one as links, which will follow:
"Classic Style" Underwear | Banksys & Uli | Auschwitz | StrandHotel Wellness | The "Siegert"-Name applications on the own underwear when I was a youngster before beeing sent to a kind of youth-camp |
And then, looking in the net, the craziest thing of all: I did not know about the real Vivienne Westwood Underwear Collection even if this is not at all alike to what she has shown to me in the shower-room-dream.
