“We, the Chance Collective, invite you for two days of thinking, performance work and discussions surrounding the relationship between learning, failure and higher education in neoliberal times.”
- No-Case March 2017 (http://tiny.cc/nocase)
Following The Chance Collective's involvement with the Victoria & Albert Museum's 'Record, Rewind, Rethink' event on global political shifts and public debates on belonging, migration and colonialism, our No-Case is moving from Brick Lane in London to post-Brexit Berlin in order to explore international and European concepts of learning, collaboration and failure.
A showcase typically happens just before the graduation of final-year students, exhibiting projects and skills they have acquired over their degree. This is expected to be a final product shown to a curated audience in order to lead to future jobs and professional development.
In spite of neoliberal norms, we believe that process is more important than a final product. We have nothing to show but ourselves.
And so we ask: should education be a state of constant unlearning? How might we create the conditions for a freedom of failure under the increasingly violent neoliberal pressures on higher education? How can we create structures that allow conversation around work as well as presenting it? What are the effects of Brexit on higher education in Europe for international collaborations and artists?
There will be tea and coffee :)
15:00 – 16:00
Open Workshop: An Exercise in Mutual Care
