Event description

Description

The last two decades have seen the flourishing of reflections and projects related to forms of education alternative to the academia. The fast and apparently inescapable implementation of the Bologna Agreement fuelled the urgency to think about strategies for the survival of the production of knowledge under the conditions of its standardisation, corporatisation and general flattening on quantifiable standards. The context of contemporary art has been a privileged stage for reflection and experimentation of these processes – starting from the so-called “educational turn” to the recent and diffused fascination for Undercommons by Harney and Moten, and passing through an incredible number of schools and educational platforms founded by artists or cultural producers.

In which terms can it still be relevant to talk about alternative education in the arts? What are the most long-lived arguments and concepts emerged in recent years, and how can they be inhabited to evolve our strategic behaviour in the future?

Thursday 30th November: Workshop

Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti will use discussion, screenings and collective readings to expand on themes of attention, anarchist epistemology, metanoia, speculative poetics, and fugitive studies.

Friday 1st of December: Public talk and screening programme

The public talk will expand further on the themes that emerge during the workshop and will be followed by a conversation with Catalyst co-director Alessia Cargnelli and a screening programme.


This event is part of the public programme for Catalyst Arts’ current show BLACK MOUNTAIN. For more information about Catalyst Arts visit http://www.catalystarts.org.uk/ or email catalystarts@gmail.com.
