The exhibition will explore ‘A305: History of Architecture and Design, 1890-1939’, a televised, third-level Arts Course first aired in 1975 by the Open University, headquartered in Milton Keynes, UK. A key experiment in new forms of higher education within the architectural realm, and an essential example to analyze the relationship between new media as a tool to transform the transmission of knowledge and its dissemination, the creation of the Open University and the A305 class will be archeologically studied as a privileged instance for the mobilization of new media environments for educational purposes, and for the convergence of mass media and mass education. The project investigates the A305 Course as a pioneer and key case study in the ongoing development of media education and towards the idea of a globally shared culture today. This exhibition is developed in partnership with the Open University.
