Open to the public

Welcome to a three day investigation of feminist and queer pedagogies. What do they mean today, why are they urgent, and how can they be enacted inside and outside of institutional settings?

How can we understand justice and diversity in ways that are not blind to differences in gender, sexual orientation, race, class and dis/ability in the name of equality? How can feminist and queer admission policies be developed and implemented within institutions? Can management be thought of more in terms of care than administration? What does it actually require to decolonize the curriculum? What is possible within self-organized learning environments that is not within the institution? When do we learn? How is knowledge transmitted and validated? What is the agency of publishing and documenting, of citation practices? What are the acquisition politics of our libraries and databases? How can we broaden our understanding of feminist and non-Eurocentric knowledge? What kind of resources are we accessing to do so?

Together let's practice feminist pedagogies: Let's experiment with formats of knowledge production. Let's collectively prepare and eat food. Let's change the architecture of the classroom. Let's test out when and how we learn. Let's rework the role of presenter and the audience. Let's find structures that don't marginalize or silence.

A workbook will be published prior to the mobilization that will be free and accessible to everyone in order to prepare a common ground. In addition there will be the opportunity to add to spend time with the Library of Omissions and Inclusions, which will be installed during these days as well as screenings of the first two pilot episodes from Krabstadt, a feminist animated series by Jeuno Je Kim and Ewa Einhorn: Episode
#01. Whaled Women and Episode #02. Sex & Taxes.

This mobilization is the culmination of Valand Academy's 150 year anniversary and builds on the Critical Practice conference (October 2015) and the Meaning Making Meaning exhibition held at A-venue (March 2016).

It is organized by the feminist pedagogies working group at Valand Academy which at the moment is Andreas Engman, Eva Weinmayr, Gabo Camnitzer, Kanchan Burathoki, Mary Coble and Rose Borthwick.
