To Learn in Common (Which is Politics)
Emergent research on transformative pedagogy. 

This lecture and launch of the publication Situationer Workbook/Cookbook connect to emergent research around transformative pedagogy. It comes from the impetus to go back to the drawing board, in order to imagine other possible perspectives on learning and education. The research situates itself around a banner on a fire escape, a water basin, an urban garden, gymnasium, climate justice camp, a community space, and a mending shop, among others.

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.

Theory on Demand #41 Pandemic Exchange: How Artists Experience the COVID-19 Crisis
Edited by Josephine Bosma

News reports on the Covid-19 pandemic seldom include how the virus and the societal lockdowns affect artists. A lively circuit of cultural events, meetings, and exhibitions has come to an almost complete stop, leaving artists often not just with a significant drop in income but also bereft of their vital and supporting social communities. Art writer and curator Josephine Bosma, feeling quite cut off herself after a year of lockdowns and too much screen time, saw both desperate and relieved outcries from artists popping up through the glossy algorithmic veneer on social media. She decided to reach out to some of the more outspoken voices. From this an interview project was born, which grew into this collection of heartfelt stories and brief reports from artists trying to survive the pandemic and sometimes finding unexpected ways to do so.

Everything Gardens! Growing from the Ruins of Modernity

29-Nov-21

Everything Gardens! Growing from the Ruins of Modernity, edited by Marc Herbst and Michelle Teran, outlines a pedagogical model that is intended to remain useful throughout Berlin’s next 99 years, through the ravages of climate change and social upheaval. This model is centred in Berlin’s Prinzessinnengarten at Moritzplatz and developed under the moniker of Nachbarschaftsakademie (The Neighborhood Academy). The Nachbarschaftsakademie (NAK) was created in 2015 as a self-organized platform for collective learning, bringing together critical artistic practices and urban and rural activism. The NAK is an educational project bound up with an ecosystem of other projects that share similar goals in Berlin’s Prinzessinnengarten – guiding an eco-social practice over time.

Situationer Workbook / Cookbook

29-Nov-21

Situationer Workbook/Cookbook, edited by Michelle Teran with Johanna Monk, Teana Boston-Mammah, and Clementine Edwards, is a book in two volumes on transformative pedagogy and teaching in times of crisis. How can times of crisis – or of crises, in their many forms – inform and influence the pedagogies needed to situate ourselves in a troubled world? How can one tune in to the conditions, concerns and difficulties of these complex times, by cultivating new and necessary forms of humility, attentiveness and recognition toward other knowledges, other value systems, other frameworks of understanding? The essays, interviews, and other creative and critical interventions in this book offer a wide variety of reflections upon these fundamental questions.
