Khat*, Banana Leaves, Theresa May
50 × 30 × 30cm

Instructions for use: The khat itself is bundled within banana leaf wraps. Once opened and washed, the soft tips and leaves should be chewed over hours, allowing the pulp to collect in the cheek and permeate the spit. It tastes bitter as the cud and should be supplemented with drinks. Chewing gum can also help in the pulp's cohesion, stopping bitter flecks from clinging to your tonsils and causing you to wretch.
*A new law - making a class C controlled substance of khat - is raised in parliament on the 9th October 2013, and its implementation in regional municipalities is staggered over the ensuing fortnight.

The School Of The Damned is an underground Fine Art MA course run by its students and overseen by a board of captured academic advisors. Its primary function is to provide artists who cannot afford to study on an accredited program with a forum for critical discourse and rigorous re-assessment of their practices. The course also aims to establish a new network of artists, academics and institutions, which would not only advocate free education, but demand a universal acknowledgment of higher education as a fundamental right.
The course has been conceived of and produced as a pragmatic response to the current system, and as a protest against it. It should not be construed as advocating or condoning an independent system of education based on values of entrepreneurism, philanthropy or libertarianism.
