To celebrate its sixth year, this year the Warsaw Summer School teamed up with the Osiedle Jazdow community and U-Jazdowski Contemporary art centre, to design and build a series of nomadic furniture and uniform for a manifesto for the Anthropocene; reflecting our chosen themes and providing the vibrant local community with an exciting new civic-spirited asset of cultural value. During the two weeks the students developed points for the manifesto. The designs and objects built over the two weeks represent the first iterations of a design movement for the Anthropocene. The students began by developing site games and cartographies for the site before beginning to develop the manifesto. Each year the summer school develops a unique making process to introduce to the students. This year we explored earth casting with concrete.
