The School of Missing Studies

The School of Missing Studies started in 2003 as a collective made-up of artists and architects, who recognized the missing as a matter of urgency in public space and how cultural education was so close yet so far removed from cultural production. They investigated what cultures laid the foundations for the loss that we are experiencing from modernization, and how we can learn from this loss. The School of Missing Studies is calling for a space to turn existing knowledge against itself to affect our capacity to see things otherwise, to trust that seeing, and to set our own pedagogical terms.

The School of Missing Studies is initiated by Bik Van der Pol, Srdjan Janovics Weiss and Sabine Von Fischer. In 2013-2015 it was temporarily recreated for programming at the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam as a one-off, two year master Program. It also became the subject of the Sandberg Institutes first publication in this new cultural series, with essays by Liz Allan, Bik van der Pol, Charles Esche, E.C. Feiss, Laymert Garcia dos Santos, Sarah Pierce, Eloise Sweetman, Paulo Tavares, and Nato Thompson.
