ESCOLA DE VERÃO
The Summer School happens annually in Lisbon, installing, at each edition, a temporary zone of attention and of experiential and collective investigation, with a transversal question at its core. Over a period of two weeks, with a workload of 100 hours, we propose an immersive time-space for the exchange of procedures for collective improvisation-creation and co(m)position with/of the common, having Modus Operandi AND as steering and mediating tool.
Through durational experimentation with the familiar and the unfamiliar and exercises of reciprocity between taking care of oneself and taking care of the environment, we pay attention to the processes and consequences of what (and how) we do (what we do) and what and how what we do ‘does us’ in return: gestures, words, habits, perspectives, postures, modulations.
The Summer School is an opportunity of encounter for those interested in the re-materialising crystallized knowledge by way of inventive and sufficient knowledge(s); and for those interested in investigating politics of togetherness and ethics of sufficiency, by starting from whatever-place and learning-by-doing.
