This article is a part of the room: Education and (anti)Institutions

On Thursday 29 July we organized a second Zoom meeting with people and realities from different geopolitical contexts, trying to create the space for a dynamic debate with our guests and with the aim to gather a multiplicity of voices and practices, starting from some important questions while new ones emerged during the discussion. 

What relations can develop between educational processes and the context in which cultural practitioners operate? How do they influence each other? 

What languages can emerge? 

How can smaller movements spread and organize autonomously, creating new spaces and forms of discussion that are not under the hegemony of major institutions and economic circuits?

What forms can autonomous or alternative education activities assume?

We wanted to collect testimonials directly from those who have imagined and already started to put into action such experiences. The meeting consisted of a number of brief interventions by: Nika Dubrovsky, Steve Bachelor, Zinaida Vasilyeva, Axel Dāzee, Kulsoom Khan, Simeen Anjum and Saqib Mohammad Butt, Elena Mazzi, Parag Tandel and Kadambari Koli Tandel, Ekaterina Martynova, Raina Bhattacharya, Zandie Brockett, Hafsa Sayeed, Moonis Ahmad Shah and Salman Baba, Dyan Neary, Song Yi, Sarp Renk Özer, Paul Devautour, Ohida Khandakar, Blandine de la Taille, Khursheed Ahmad.
