Mobile Academy: blackmarket for Useful Knowledge and Non-Knowledge
Held in public venues, audience members sign up for a 30 minute one-on-one sessions with an expert (sociologist, sanitation worker, neighbor, scientist,
artist) for one Euro. Attendees can book several different sessions with â€œknowledge service personnelâ€ during the night, or choose to listen to othersâ€™ conversations via headphones. Each conversation is made available in an online archive.
â€œA hallucinated community college will be produced in which learning and unlearning, knowledge and non-knowledge, and strategies of living and surviving
will change ownership in a non-institutional way. The transfer of knowledge as a communicative and performative act will become a collectively, whispered
story of knowledge on this night.â€ (Mobile Academy)
Transfer of knowledge between participants and experts. Talks are made available online and in an Encyclopedia.
