The School invites practitioners, artists and thinkers to "join the search for building blocks that could make up a ‘curriculum’ for the ‘Anthropocene'. Or to be more precise, to explore how to live, learn, and die in the ‘Anthropocene’."

"In three sessions during the summer, together we will search for practices, institutions, artifacts, and pedagogies that (re)connect us to our present environment in meaningful ways. We will jointly develop a broader framework of thought, engagement, and action, which will eventually translate into a series of societal and artistic interventions performed by students at the Summer School for the Apocalypse in September." 

Session dates

The first session ('Dying'), will explore the interaction between art, death, and the ending of our current mode of being. "It will revolve around the question: 'what needs to die'? It will focus on technology, decolonizing the mind, and re-conceptualizing the 'end'."

Date: 5 July 2019
Time: 11:00-17:00
Location: Het Nieuwe Instituut

In the second session ('Learning'), we explore ‘worlding’ and ‘re-worlding’; "how collective action, art, architecture, design, and ecological interventions can create ‘learning spaces’, which allow us to 're-world' our contemporary era."

Date: 16 August 2019
Time: 11:00-17:00
Location: To be announced

The third session ('Living'), will "develop platforms in which living becomes an encounter of ‘becomings’. What are the building blocks for transforming our mode of being to multi-species muddles?"

Date: 23 August 2019
Time: 11:00-17:00
Location: To be announced
