Free/Slow University of Warsaw: Readings for Artworkers, Vol. 1


theorists, activists and artists on the production and functioning of culture

This is the first volume of the Journal of the Free/Slow University of Warsaw and a recap of the first year of its activity. The internal diversity of the volume corresponds to the mode of operation of our para-institution, which experiments with various avenues of knowledge production and exchange.

The subject of the first edition of the Free/Slow University of Warsaw was “culture not for profit.” The initiative referred to the tradition of free education, with a focus on establishing an environment that would enable critical reflection not only on culture, but also on its social, political and economic background. The participants made an attempt at theoretical and practical research of the conditions of knowledge and culture production in late capitalism, an analysis of the life conditions of activists, artists and cultural operators, as well as at exerting an impact on cultural policy and participating in debates on the current and the future shape of our societies.

The publication is available in Polish in printed form and online in English >>.
