TOPOS 3 introduces: The Evening School of Gentle Disarming

In 2021, wpZimmer introduced TOPOI as a way to mold a collective space for radical imagination and pragmatic utopias while engaging collectively around the social and societal issues of our time. Within each Topos, we host a themed collective residency of three weeks which is designed for peer-to-peer learning. This month, we introduce TOPOS 3: The Evening School of Gentle Disarming, inviting Ahilan Ratnamohan, Zorka Wollny, The Agency of Singular Investigations, bodies of knowledge (BOK), Siniša Ilić,Sirah Foighel Brutmann, Eitan Efrat, Danae Theodoridou, Luc Debouvry, Guilel Treiber and Inge Vyt to create a public and closed program.

Within the Evening Schools of Gentle Disarming, the invited artists will each use their own tools to reflect on the history of social movements, weaving stories and dreams of solidarity into their collective practice. Inspired by the various historical movements of the ‘people’s schools’, as a tool for education and emancipation, we are organizing as an informal Evening School in which knowledge is exchanged and reversed mentoring is used as a methodology.

wpZimmer invites you to be part of and mold the TOPOS 3 journey. For more information on both the closed and public program, head to the Open Call Form.

About TOPOS

Within TOPOI (Ancient Greek for 'common place'), we make a collective space for radical imagination and pragmatic utopias. We want to expand the field of action of the arts, expand its means and possibilities, and find ways to engage together around the social and societal issues of our time. In these collective residencies we zoom in on a theme, but also explore what a collective practice can be. With TOPOI 2022, we are developing a shared artistic learning pathway that is outside of formal educational and pedagogical contexts.
