(Internal) workshop in Berlin to discuss technofeminist educational strategies for female/feminist/queer (open to all genders) based on critical pedagogy as well as feminist pedagogy, framed by the larger techno-political context, our starting points are own experiences in the field as practitioners, users and teachers.

Participation possible on request: Please write to workshop [at] netzkunst [dot] berlin
 
Guided by questions such as:
 
„What concepts of KNOWLEDGE inform our technofeminist thinking and practice?“,
„How much do we have to KNOW in order to be able to take an emancipated position?“,
„What is the role of AFFECT in our daily handling of technology?“
„To what extent can the principles of open source culture be an inspiration for educational projects?”
„What do we need in order to build communality in and for the technofeminist struggle? (local/global)?“
“What are methods to transform what has been learned into collective agency and empowering strategies for desired change?”
 
We are planning to spend one day together in Berlin at panke.gallery (Saturday, 12th of October 2019,11:00am-5.00pm)
 
to exchange experiences, compare methodologies, develop strategies, inspire each other, and think about taking the next steps together…
… maybe in form of a manifesto, a curriculum, a book, a conference, a research project… We will see what is most suitable and also feasible.
