learning emancipatory selfinstitution,
socialised research and unlearning


Kunsthalle Exnergasse,
Währingerstraße 59, 1090 Vienna

Opening: Wednesday, March 23th 2005, 7pm
Duration: March 24th - April 24th 2005

W...WirWissen gathers various strategies and positions in collaborative
knowledge production and emancipatory self-organization. The notion of
knowledge is consciously set as a blurry centre, a fragmented cluster of
postfordist economy, education and artistic practices; a pattern of lines,
which the project tries to approach through circular movements. Such a
movement is simultanously a statement and a stuttering.
The exhibition is a focal point of a growing international exchange between
self-institutions in the field of art and culture. This process started a
year ago and will continue, temporarily represented at workshops and
micro-symposia in different places.
For the Kunsthalle Exnergasse the figure of theatre will be set up as a
model for such a - inherently paradox - representation of informal learning
and unlearning: performative research, a rehearsal stage of a production
without premiere. Over the course of the exhibition weekly events, lectures
and workshops will be scheduled.
