Artistic Interventions II: “Artistic Interventions and Education as Critical Practice” (Salzburg, April 4th and 5th, 2014)

Teaser Image: 

As continuation of the symposium series “Artistic Interventions. Collaborative and self-organized practices. With a focus on anti-racist and feminist perspectives” held in autumn 2013, we are organizing for the current semester, a symposium on “Artistic Interventions and Education as Critical Practice – (Un)learning processes, community engagement, and solidarity” scheduled for April 2014.

This symposium’s presentations and two workshops—with Janna Graham/Centre for Possible Studies, Nicolas Vass/ Precarious Workers Brigade, and Annette Krauss/Read-in—will explore the ways that artistic interventions can create open and shared collaborative and informal learning spaces for empowerment and agency in educational contexts, and in exchange and solidarity with social movements.
