The focus will be site specific strategies in terms of intervention into and disruption of the social use of public space. We will talk about the self-organisation of space and language in relation to: setting up autonomous spaces for meeting and exchange (Education); setting up autonomous channels of the audio-visual communication (Television), and setting up autonomous channels of oral and sonorous communication (Radio). The gallery will be used as a space to develop and experiment with diverse related strategies of self-organisation.
As a point of departure I will present my own experiments in education (Copenhagen Free University), television (tv-tv) and radio (Hospital Prison University Radio)
I will bring a library of printed matter on self-organisation of space (the Situationists, Motherfuckers, Provos, Free University Movement, etc.), activist television (Video Freaks, TV-TV, Guerrilla Television, etc.) and radio politics (Radio Free Algiers/Frantz Fanon, Radio Alice, Radio Ligna, etc.)
The course will be practical and experimental trying out some strategies either as a temporary net radio, or youtube channel, or setting up a space/place for education and propaganda.
