"I was dreaming something I had already dreamed about once, or I remembered the dream in my dream.
And there must have been thousands of these fragments!

⚠️ Content Warning: Partially slightly more intense images. A few of the images might disturb or depress you. If you suffer from depression, anxiety disorders or PTSD, you may consider to not watch the show.
Join us whenever during our online 8 hours long session to test together a collection of images that try to name a concrete problem or situation of oppression. But this is not aimed to be a one side process. We are interested in what these images provoke: what are your associations and interpretations of what you are confronted with. We encourage you to react to these images by sharing what emotions they awaken, what words or stories they bring to mind. Your reaction can take the form of a text or a number of other images that you want to share with us. The material collected will serve as an important feedback for our project-in-progress called Futuropolis: school of emancipation which is developed in collaboration with teachers and pupils in regard to create a new pedagogical method. In critical pedagogy such images are called "codes" and their role is to create a visual gate that helps us to enter a concrete theme or problem. We look forward to this collective imagination excercise!
