Daniela Ramos Arias, Stacy Brafield, Andrea De Pascual (Pedagogías Invisibles): Education and Mediation of Bergen Assembly 2019 (talk and discussion, 60’)
The education and mediation of Bergen Assembly 2019 takes the three positions – Assembly of Idiots, Doing Assembly, and Assembly of Phantoms – as defined in Bergen Assembly 2019’s concept as a starting point. It provides an approachable and inclusive entry point to the triennial. The education and mediation focusses on utilising the triennial as a place for exchange, offering the opportunity to share experiences and knowledges, seeking positions that were not foreseen and remain open to the unexpected. The mediation and education will be run by Stacy Brafield and Daniela Ramos Arias and has been developed in collaboration with the collective Pedagogías Invisibles. For the Bergen Assembly Introduction Days, Stacy Brafield, Daniela Ramos Arias and Andrea De Pascual/Pedagogías Invisibles will introduce the education and mediation for Bergen Assembly 2019.
