Vi ställs ut på TATE Modern i London

Tvättstugan som allmänt klassrum och vår idée om att göra kunskap, då specifikt kunskap om stadsplanerings processer och möjligheterna till att göra medborgareengagemang  lättillgänglig för allmänheten för att främja demokratisk stadsplanering och hållbar stadsutveckling  kommet att ställas ut tillsammans med andra liknande briljanta idéer på Tate Modern i London. Det är Public Works som genom Tate Exchange kommer att hålla ett symposium mellan den 6-7 april och kommer att samtala om vad det handlar om att vara ‘civic’, alltså medborgerlig. Här nedan ser ni deras ord om symposiet och även det vi skrivit om vårt projekt, vi länkar även till Public Works och Tates hemsida. Symposiet är gratis men man måste boka biljetter i förväg. Här hittar ni Facebook eventet.

Public works om symposiet.

THE ART OF BEING CIVIC
Under the title of ‘The Civic University‘ public works, a Tate Exchange Associate, is exploring situated modes of education, both as a critique of existing university models, and as a new model where knowledges are produced by and disseminated to the civil society. It takes its point of departure from Jean-Claude Passerine’s  publication Les Héritiers published in 1964 denouncing the institutions role in the reproduction of unequal social structures in the content they teach, the modes of access to education and their methods of teaching. This inequality was reinforced by the coalition government raising tuition fees, the demand of a linear path towards the job market and the move away from big government to ‘the big society’, whilst offering no clear financial strategy of support. This changing landscape demands a closer look at the role the civil society plays in the production of knowledge and the politics of collaborative city making. The Art of Being Civic will bring together activists, artists, academics and architects to discuss pedagogies that enable civil societies actions towards social collective change. It will address how knowledge can play a role in civic activism claiming rights over the city, and act as a critical platform. The first symposium day will explore the role of civil society in relation to contemporary city making, while the second day will focus on pedagogy and education, understanding how and by whom knowledge is produced, who sanctions it and how it is distributed and accumulated.” citerat 23 mars 2017 kl 11:49 från Public Works hemsida

Tate exchange om symposiet.

”Under the title of  The Civic University, public works is exploring situated modes of education, both as a critique of existing university models, and as a new model where knowledges are produced by and disseminated to the civil society.

It takes its point of departure from Jean-Claude Passeron’s publication Les Héritiers published in 1964 denouncing the institutions role in the reproduction of unequal social structures in the content they teach, the modes of access to education and their methods of teaching. This inequality was reinforced by the coalition government raising tuition fees, the demand of a linear path towards the job market and the move away from big government to ‘the big society’, whilst offering no clear financial strategy of support.

The Civic University is currently supported by UMA School of Architecture in Umeå, Sweden, as part of their ongoing research into alternative models for community engaged city making.”  citerat 23 mars 2017 kl 11:52 från Tate Exchanges hemsida.

Tvättstugan för symposiet.

”This project intends to give agency to a multiplicity of voices and foster a true democratic community of autonomous agents where it’s design is made civic.

In Sweden landlords are required by law to provide laundry facilities, this requirement was made statutory in the 1940’s and ever since laundry rooms have been one of the spaces defining everyday life in the nation.

The project is about facilitating civic engagement through arranging activities addressing common issues in a common space, the laundry room, a space close to home and already defined by everyday life and opinions. Everyday life, yes because laundry is part of it, as true as it is that we get clean when we wash, it’s that we get dirty again. But opinions? Laundry rooms in Sweden are unique common spaces because of how they sit close to our private lives and therefor host conflicts about how and how not to use the space. We bring our dirt there to get clean, it’s often located in the same building as our apartments and therefor connected in multiple ways to our home-turf making these spaces common, but personal. A phenomenon common particularly to laundry rooms has thus arisen, one where we express opinions through posting angry notes.

This space of opinion and commonplace is in the project introduced as something defined by these parameters, but beyond washing. A space where we meet as a neighborhood council and together consider common civic issues and work to solve them. Presently the neighbourhood council has undertaken the task of co-designing an alternate proposal to a municipal building project, a proposal meant for a site neighbouring our laundry room. The neighborhood councils proposal will, through using methods of co-design be sprung out of local knowledge, ideas and hopes, anchored in the neighborhood and in the people that live there.”
