THE SCHOOL OF THE WE is an artistic, cultural and pedagogical process
that investigates and supports the formation of a collective subject,
a sense of belonging that includes the human and the non-human element,
centering on conviviality, ecosystemic interdependence and multispecies
These are some of the issues that The School of the We—a title borrowed from Mathias Heyden’s reflections on the commons in urban settings—will engage and experiment with, beyond social fragmentation, and the logic of the nation, the state and the market.
Across the Annenviertel neighbourhood, in five locations, the “islands of conviviality” created by artists will emerge and address site-specific questions and orientations. These temporary structures, realized with the participation of many neighbours, are to be used, inhabited, and enjoyed by everyone.
In the gallery space of < rotor > the artists will also offer sensorial and immersive experiences to the visitors, inviting them to participate with their creativity, interacting with their pieces or taking action in the workshops. The times in which our senses are numbed and we are confined in solitary activities will pass!
