Rethinking and designing school formats while reflecting on love as a pedagogical and political attitude is a recurrent SOL activity. During September, October and November 2019, Beursschouwburg hosts SOL in the context of our We Love You programme.
School Of Love (SOL) brings together people who care for exploring modes of being together. The world enters School Of Love through its participants - their stories and desires are the perspectives through which questions are asked and actions are taken into fields of social engagement, cultural activism and art.
The idea that love is charged with potential to change the world's politics makes us ask: How to take care of what’s between us, within us and other than us? Would training the capacity for (a non romantic) love help getting there without fearing differences? How to teach love without imposing ideologies? How can schools themselves love?
Whether we manage to answer these questions or not, during a series of work sessions we playfully design the schools that we wish to have today. Schools that teach how to challenge the status quo instead of how to adapt to it.
Welcome to the public presentation.
