A PROJECT IN COLLABORATION WITH CRITICAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT
Please join us on June 30th, 2022 at 7 PM CET for Part II: UNLEARNING, an open dialogue about the UNEDUCATION project, based on sharing and framing of pedagogical practices. This talk will be the second episode of a conversation that took place on May 25th, 2022 both in Zagreb and online, between ALU and NABA professors, students, together with Nika Dubrovsky, Marko Tadic, Andris Brinkmanis, Ana Dević, Ivan Skvrce, and Nikola Bojić. We discussed questions regarding educational and institutional learning, the respective institutional backgrounds and the practices and perspectives we embody.
Part II: UNLEARNING
This assembly and open dialogue will be based on sharing and framing of pedagogical practices, with the main focus on UNLEARNING and education as a practice of freedom, (Paolo Freire), teaching and learning in a manner that respects and cares for our souls (bell hooks), being active participants and not just passive consumers. From un-learning one’s privileges, (Denise Ferreira da Silva) to our growing and changing positions as we continue to learn and un-learn all the time (Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak). The meeting will be organized as a dialogue and conversation rather than just a presentation, with brief interventions of both students and non, with space for questions and debate in the end.
The UNEDUCATION project is a collective initiative that moves between research, meetings, and self-management carried out in collaboration between CSD, the students of NABA (New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan), and the students of ALU (Academy of Fine Arts of Zagreb). The project includes a series of poster exhibitions, workshops, and talks on the theme of education and pedagogy.
It is a follow up of “Education and Anti-Institutions” series, that during the 2022/23 season will consist of 6 keynote lectures and 6 open assemblies. Opening lecture and conversation with acclaimed anthropologist Keith Hart “Lifelong self-learning and modern education” held on April 28th inaugurated the 2022/23 program and is available (Keith Hart – About Education and Learning / 28-04-2022).
