With The Temporary Performance Secretary, CommunityArtWorks stages various interactive performance installations and actions in open spaces of a school over a longer period of time. The entire school community is actively and passively involved in an open artistic process.
The encounter takes place outside the classroom setting and is not fixated on a specific result. The thematic starting point is "the Office for the Use of Mistakes and Coincidences” and questions, such as: What does a room need so that the occupants can develop themselves better? How can art influence the school curriculum and environment?
The Temporary Performance Secretary's aim is to incorporatepermanent change and bring artistic processes into the usual school day. The school is viewed as a “system”, which should support young learners.
The continual presence of artists and their actions are the focus. The Temporary Performance Secretary effects the general school culture, as well as the aesthetic development of individuals.
