We bridge the gap between education and life by bringing school closer and integrating it into the lives of the students. X-School makes school moving and inspiring: bravely thought from the students, close to their interests, in the middle of their arts and cultural landscape, authentic and with a sense of their challenges and dreams. The presentation of the subjects, the language, the learning materials, the spaces, the furnishings, the celebrations - we consciously design the school to be the axis of our social and educational lives.
So-called sub- and entertainment cultures such as hip hop, electro, graffiti, street art and their respective lifestyles are elevated to the rank of high culture. Artists and experts from the respective professional fields give workshops, the learning material, the projects, and actions are designed, accordingly, and the corresponding art is exhibited in the school.
As an example, the relevant youth culture of Hip Hop is mentioned. Many schools use it to arouse the interest of young people. Rap AGs are then organized, for example. Students write rap lyrics and create a song. So far so good. But the X-School goes one step further by approaching Hip Hop as an art form on a par with e.g., classical music. Accordingly, we use rap to teach literature, philosophy, art, and social studies.
