Program Description

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of UNIDEE and to celebrate Cittadellarte has organized a dedicated program with new activities and special themes. The modules program is organized around three key concepts: - COLLECTIVE AGENCY: a series of modules exploring the potential of collective action and its political implications mentored by Chto Delat and Adelita Husni Bey - CLIMATE ACTION: a summer camp to rediscuss the human impact on our planet and imagine a postpetrol society mentored by Brett Bloom, Luigi Coppola and Fernando Garcia Dory - MODES OF INSTITUTING: a series of meetings rethinking how we can establish ethical principles to build our institutions not only as centres of power, hierarchy, control and discipline. Furthermore, new exciting features have been added to the 2019 UNIDEE programme: underlying its interdisciplinary nature: conferences, a call for paper, a package of fee reductions and fee waiver.
