Summer School for Applied Autonomy
The Summer School for Applied Autonomy is a research initiative interested in the technical know- how but also the social, political and affective aspects involved in autonomous living. Its functioning is largely self-sufficient, tending towards environmental sustainability, and it is based on feedback loops where its different outputs (from garbage to words) become inputs that re-feed the social and material body of the garden. The summer school have been built collaboratively with art students, over the course of a seminar I taught in 2013 (Self-sufficieny in the era of the new Commons). It is open to everyone who is interested in learning by engaging in a minimum residency of one week.
The project was part of my research fellowship at the Graduate school at the Berlin University of the Arts, and has been generously supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
