27 & 28 MAY



FRI 27 MAY 17:00 – 21:00H & SAT 28 MAY 10:30 – 14:00H.

In this session, we will work on texts written by our guests so as to lead the discussion as a critical workshop in which these ideas are related to our own educative experiences. The texts deal will very important concepts, worthy of an in-depth study such as the construction of community, learning process and affects, citizenship, thoughts as an act of resistance…These texts allow us to think and they encourage a collective reflection on emotions, conflicts and uneasiness as well as the necessity of constructing a new kind of autonomy intertwined with other subjects, rather than with individuality. This workshop is the continuation of one of the main line of works of las lindes consisting of a reflection on education from different perspectives and experiences.

Diego Sztulwark and Verónica Gago from Colectivo Situaciones

Colectivo situaciones defines itself as a Buenos Aires-based militant research collective. Militant research is an elaboration of thoughts in contact with social experience. This practice intends to contribute to self-representation of society through a constant, flexible and equal work with all parties to the conflict. They set up the independent publishing company "Tinta Limón". They were already involved with some of the most active social movements and initiatives before the 2001 popular uprising: Movimiento de Trabajadores Desocupados (unemployed workers’ movement), Escuelas Libres (free schools), Trabajadoras del Sexo (sex workers), Trabajadores precarios del telemarketing (precarious telemarketing workers), GAC (Street Art Group), H.I.J.O.S. (organization of the children of the disappeared during the dictatorship) etc. They also participated in educative experiences such as the school "Creciendo Juntos" or "Universidad Trashumante". In our lindes session of December 2010 we discussed fragments of Un elefante en la escuela, (from 26.15 on). 

Diego Sztulwark and Verónica Gago are holding a residency in Madrid as they are supported by the programme for researchers, El Ranchito (Matadero Madrid).
