We are supposed to be productive and creative and safe. Children, adults, all of us. Yet strangely, while we try hard to be good, we see all kinds of things around us being destroyed. So, who decides what is destruction and what is not? Who has permission to destroy?

Sibylle Peters, artist and founder of Theatre of Research

Kaputt: The Academy of Destruction is dedicated to the artist Gustav Metzger 1926-2017

Kaputt: The Academy of Destruction is a transgenerational academy made up of six children and six adult academicians who will explore, experiment with and create acts of destruction for public viewing.

You are invited to take a trip through the Academy, add your destructive desires to the Academy Manifesto, take up provocations from the Kaputt Academicians and view the destructive proceedings.

Kaputt: The Academy of Destruction is a collaboration between LADA (the Live Art Development Agency), Sibylle Peters of Theatre of Research and Tate Early Years and Families Learning Programme.
