IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD and THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PURE ENGLISH
Whitechapel Gallery x Tower Hamlets Schools 2021
A workshop exploring language, maths, time, decolonisation, drawing and collage using the work of Nalini Malani as a springboard for ideas.
Exploring histories, legacies and journies of maths and language, from the failings of Roman Numerals, the complexities of the Arabic numbers we use today and how there’s no such thing as pure English.
Students were encouraged to think critically, holistically and ambitiously in the world they live in and how time affects change and how they could change the world around them. Using Philosophy For Children questioning model, students were introduced to histories of language, maths and time and how different attitudes have changed how we work with these in our everyday lives.
