Brigitte Mierau - Artist
Brigitte Mierau graduated from Camberwell’s BA Drawing course in 2013. She was awarded a Life Boat studio award in 2014 and is currently artist in residence at the SHM Foundation.
The ‘Education? = Discuss’ patchwork banner is the interim outcome of Brigitte Mierau's research residency at the SHM Foundation. Mierau aims to use the residency to look into inequality in education in England.
The banner is covered in stitched quotes from thirteen outstanding education and learning experts who took part in the project. The quotes were stitched by members of staff and friends of SHM.
The next phase of this social commentary piece will be to lend it to schools and other educational institutions. The banner will be used as a focal point in social sciences debates on what education means and what it could and should be.
