I was so excited for my first Saturday class at my art school with the theme “Networking” and couldn’t wait what the day will bring. o(≧∇≦o) Since I’ve got forgotten and didn’t received an invitation I was a bit nervous because there were two locations of the school at which it could be and I simply didn’t know where to go and didn’t had any phone numbers of fellow students from the class. Nor was it possible to ask the school office as it was outside their opening hours. There was a 50/50 chance at where it could be and I just chose and luckily was right but in the morning hectic that I created I forgot to bring my wallet with me. What a start… (๑•̀ㅁ•́๑)✧
It’s actually not important to go about all the details what happend in the class or how the teacher was but there was just one simple thing that totally bugged me. At the end of the class we went to a museum – the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art.
Which is right now showing the exhibition “Producing Futures – An Exhibition on Post-Cyber-Feminism”. Oh I couldn’t wait for the art to tell me their story. Unfortunately we there were only left 20 minutes (!). Not enough time to set the mood for it, have a look at everything and not a bit possible to look into the subject. So it felt weird and I couldn’t understand it. I was deeply disappointed thinking it was only me who felt like that…
On the way home I rode the train with a really nice girl I met at my class and was wondering about her opinion. Being longer at the school she told me that she felt the exact same way and that the teacher should have left it out since it will bring you absolutely nothing but disappointment, especially with having students (like me) for which it was the first saturday class. That really made me cheer up! That is actually what networking is about – the exchange about art with other people. Not being able to discuss art with like-minded people is just a big No-No at a networking class in my opinion. ヾ(｀ε´)ﾉ
Let me know if you had a likewise experience or share your thoughts if you’d like. I’m always interested in hearing it.
