On Monday, 7th of February at 7.00 PM, a member of WHW Ana Dević will give a lecture at MACBA Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona.
Through a lecture named From Resilience to Antifragility. Transgressing Boundaries through Collective Efforts Ana Dević will present WHW Akademija, as well as experiences related to cultural programming with the restrictions of the pandemic and the use of open-end formats in experimental education.
During the pandemic, unstable conditions have become a prevailing paradigm of the wider cultural landscape. This lecture will discuss how the processes of self-organisation, reciprocity, adaptability, collectiveness, antifragility and mutual care that WHW Akademija tries to cultivate can be relevant on a larger scale.
The lecture is a part of the two-year collaborative project Education from Below, conducted by Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, MACBA – Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, and WHW.
