2009 LIFELONG LEARNING
The series of paintings shows spaces in clean office architecture with matching furniture. The spaces are used for training, job interviews, examinations etc. ‚Lifelong learning‘ is used as a slogan in modern business that puts all the responsibility for success and failure or professional progression onto the lone individual.
These spaces seldom have anything playful about them, nothing that invites personal progression and learning; they tend to be cold, anonymous and impersonal. They look entirely unsuited to human use, creating situations that, despite their ‚modern‘ appearance, run counter to contemporary approaches to education, i.e., in contrast to the first impression, they are de facto unprogressive.
