Emergent perspectives: Listening with, Learning with, in Dialogue with

Let’s begin with a retelling. A small group of learners, carrying a motley collection of used chairs, move in a single line procession towards a street in the North of Rotterdam. They walk up the stairs into an empty apartment and place the chairs, transferred from other locations and social settings, in a circle in the living room. So culminates the first action in the Study Kitchen of the Performative Action course, WdKA Social Practices.

This lecture will introduce the learning model Study Kitchen as an emergent strategy, feminist, transversal pedagogy. That is, an approach that proposes how to listen, learn and be in dialogue with. How does one learn in movement, through situated encounters, and by building knowledge in common? These are questions that offer a foundational nature of the ‘loving questions’, questions that are not solution-oriented but keep within the flow of life.
