The School of Missing Men takes as it starting point the fact that 75 percent of students at BEAR are women, a norm ratio in art schools across the Netherlands and abroad. How is it then that the art-world continues to be for the most part male dominated? The goal is to see how we can learn from our current situation, to see it both as a set of systemic problems to investigate as well as a series of opportunities to take hold of. Looking into social behaviors and the values ascribed to them, as performed in a poignant manner in Ahsan’s Shy Radicals, becomes a crucial site to collectively reflect on and trouble existing norms.
