Education from Below: Art as a site for learning

Together with MACBA, Barcelona and curators collective WHW, Zagreb, the Rijksakademie organises a two-year collaborative programme that explores art as a place for dialogue, collective learning and imagination.

Education doesn't belong only in institutions, but it can be horizontal and come from below, from communities. Education from Below recognises that art practices can dislocate the usual hierarchies of what should or should not be learned and traditional divisions between theory and practice, and that knowledge does not have to be based on accumulation, but rather on sharing and mutual learning.

Together with our two partners we will explore new models of art practice based on collective learning and will generate a network of institutions and professionals for sharing methodologies.

The Education from Below activities will run until March 2022. You can check out the programma through:
