Discourse Series


A video archive of the entire episodes can be found here.


How can we shape the future of our planet, without falling back into the damaging capitalist narratives of the past? The interdisciplinary, hybrid and award-winning discourse series School of Resistance gives a platform to different experts of change from around the world: artists, activists, politicians, philosophers and engaged citizens. IIPM continues thus its work on the contradictions of the global economy and postmodern reality: using the means of activism and art, the aim is to create a blueprint for a politics of resistance. As a symbolic institution of the future, the initiative examines aesthetic practices of resistance, discussing art as a transformative, reality-creating practice.
