The Public School is organizing a 13-day seminar, meeting each day at a different location in Berlin. This seminar takes the form of an open reading group, where the texts discussed each day resonate with the site selected. On 18 July The Public School and The Office will host an event to be held at Salon Populaire. The day will unfold as a series of participatory conversations and workshops.
The first meeting will be Sunday, July 4, with a discussion of the Tiqqun publication, Introduction to Civil War (sections 3 and 4) at the Island of Youth in Treptower Park.
If you aren't in Berlin but would still like to join the reading group, just reply to this email and we'll add you to the email discussion list (but be prepared for as many messages about logistics and weather as about the topics of the day!).
Deadlock: perpetual war, failing economies, the crumbling of education, capitalist realism, our environment in ruin, hostility everywhere.
Resistance? Confrontation? Insurrection?
Exodus: silence, autonomy, occupation, withdrawl, invisibility, friendship.
