Concept: Joulia Strauss
Curator of the Symposion: Sotirios Bahtsetzis
Organized by AthenSYN and Avtonomi Akadimia
In collaboration with Allianz Cultural Foundation

We build an educational system which consists of politically motivated and artistic initiatives for sharing knowledge, and of proposals by thinkers who see education as decisive for social change. Texts, documentations, manifestos and sketches of educational models are united in a symposion entitled: The School of Everything. The symposion takes place as a continuation of the project “Universitas” in both Kassel and Athens. We shift from learning to sharing. We decriminalize sharing because we would like to enjoy the pleasure of giving. We liberate ourselves from the strictures of “Homo Sapiens,” a construct imposed upon life. We will transform the educational system of Europe.
