Zine Launch

Sunday 13 February from 2 pm

Wächterstraße 11, 04107 Leipzig
Academy for Transcultural Exchange / AtA presents two in one: continue and undisciplinary learning – Curriculum From Below / Many
HEDIS, Raum 0.69

Over the last year District*School Without Center and students from HGB / Academy for Transcultural Exchange (AtA) started a process of weaving new worlds, leaving open ends and learning undisciplined (from each other / stories / stones / mistakes / plants /    ). We invite you to be part of a physical extension of the zine we created to document our journey and the ongoing collective process of listening / sitting / feeling / resting / talking / playing /    /
On sunday at 2 pm we will be activating the entanglement of ideas, words, movements, relations that build the undisciplined base of the publication / our collaboration / this world. Stop by to have a tea, leave a trace, take a break

undisciplinary learning
WorkBook Winter 2021
Curriculum from Below / Many

This undisciplinary learning WorkBook is part of an experiment initiated with a group of students at HGB Leipzig and artists, activists and cultural workers from District*School Without Center Berlin. It is an invitation to collectively rethink a curriculum (of an art school for example) as a living arrangement of knowledge, connecting imaginations and stories that emerge from decolonial and feminist art and publishing practices, self-organized learnings and entangled histories of institutional education. How can we perceive our concrete, daily living environments as learning spaces? What needs to change in our learning environments so that we can attend to polyphonic understandings around knowledge productions in all their complexities?

What has emerged from these constellations of thinking and doing things together is a multiplicity of emancipatory knowledge that cannot be summed up in any one kind narrative. The written and visual accounts included in this dispatch speak to each other and to the world in unruly and asynchronous ways; they honor each of the knowledge that comes from the specificities of our bodily experiences and local contexts while acknowledging that such knowledge is always already a part of the world that we seek to understand.
