ABOUT THE hANDling Module

Each year, the School of Reparar's hANDling program offers a circuit of laboratories and workshops to introduce the Modus Operandi AND constellation of games with Fernanda Eugenio, providing a plan for sharing and learning the basic tools and principles of the practice. In the first semester of 2024, the extensive (March, 4 weekly after-work meetings) and intensive (June, Saturday online immersion) modalities will be offered.

ABOUT THE Unruly Studies Module

The Unruly Studies are groups of collaborative studies of the inhabited philosophy of the Modus Operandi AND. They are unruly because they claim a place of study that goes against the docile and domesticating hierarchy of knowledge, proposing themselves as an incarnated and undisciplined, inventive and participatory experience.

The Unruly Studies take the form of workshops on experimental practices, combining games, ritual and performative propositions with the sharing of AND Lab's new tools and formulations, in an invitation to the sensitive and embodied activation of concepts.

The proposal is to open up to the outside world the processes of creation and constant expansion of the philosophical and practical constellation of the AND, building a first approximation to the issues that occupy us every year at School of Reparar. In 2024, the extensive (May, 3 weekly after-work meetings) and intensive (June, Sunday online immersion) modalities will be offered.


The Modus Operandi AND (MO_AND) is a methodology for the ethical-aesthetic, somatic-political and experiential investigation of relationship and reciprocity, based on the radical commitment to repair the Irreparable, created by anthropologist and artist Fernanda Eugenio. Mobilizing a constellation of concept-tools and game-propositions, MO_AND propitiates the direct and experiential investigation of the mechanisms of living-together, that is, of the composition practiced as ethics of positioning-with, through the exercise of the Reparar: to stop again (re-parar), to make the inventory-invention of the possible each time (reparagem), and to effect repair through the durational care-curation of relationships (reparação). By practicing an embodied consciousness and modes of doing based on the circumscription of the common and the performativity of affect, which place thinking, feeling, and doing on the same plane, MO_AND paves the way for the emergence of collaborative landscapes and territories of sufficiency, based on the co(m)passionate exercise of presence and the reconnection with the sensitive experience of inseparability.

MO_AND offers concrete tools to enhance processes of collaboration, co-learning, and negotiation of coexistence. In particular, it allows the perception of behavioral patterns and relational tendencies, contributing to the development of emotional self-regulation skills, self-management of attention (selection, focusing and coordination of stimuli), and consequent decision making and respective embodiment. In the scope of the laboratories and workshops, the 'board game' interface is the one that serves as the basis for sharing, then unfolded into different more complex exercises, with different scales, in the studio or in outdoor space, depending on the group and the duration of the meeting.

In this game there are no pre-established rules, but immanent rules, which emerge from the game itself, that is, from the co-positioning and co-responsibility of those who participate. Through a work of folding and unfolding and direct handling of the materiality of events, it is possible to embody the issues of coexistence, sustainability, creativity, empathy/sympathy, availability to difference, and reciprocity.

The exercises allow participants with the most diverse interests and profiles - coming from any area, having or not previous contact with each other or with the MO_AND - to share the same plane of disquiet, experiencing in an intimate and collective way the ethical-political and affective issues involved in the co-responsive construction of the common.
