At noa language school you can learn to share your mother tongue with foreigners – or learn to unshare it when necessary.

For three days, noa will host artists’ conceived language sessions, film screenings and presentations to create a different approach to language education and reflect upon the experience of living (in)between two or more languages.

Attendance of the school’s activities is free and open to all. However, we kindly ask you that you reserve by sending an email to: contact@noalanguageschool.org

noa language school is an art project initiated by artist Mounira Al Solh and curator Angela Serino.

La médiathèque

Esther Kempf and noa language school.

La médiathèque comprises a collection of publications, texts and excerpts from books, as well as videos, films and sound materials that have inspired and continue to inspire us in the development of the schools activities.
Artists have contributed by suggesting / providing / lending us source material that is relevant to their language sessions. Mounira and Angela gathered material that they have read and collected during the past months in preparation for the school. Esther Kempf has been invited to make her own selection of this material and develop a transient mobile structure to display this content.
Visitors and participants can consult la médiathèque by Esther Kempf at Goleb and SMBA.

For the complete programme with a short description of each session and the participating artists, please visit our website.

Attendance of the school’s activities is free and open to everyone. However, we kindly ask you that you reserve by sending an email to:contact@noalanguageschool.org
