The Silent University. Towards a Transversal Pedagogy

Impulse Edition

Eds. Florian Malzacher, Ahmet Öğüt, Pelin Tan. An Edition by Impulse Theater Biennale. Berlin: Sternberg Press, 2016.

In English & German language

The Silent University, initiated by artist Ahmet Öğüt in 2012, is an autonomous platform for academics who cannot share their knowledge due to their status of residence, because their degrees are not recognized or regaining access to academia is blocked for other reasons. This first comprehensive publication  introduces the initiative and contextualizes it in the wider framework of both radical pedagogy and socially engaged art projects.

With contributions by Florian Malzacher, María do Mar Castro Varela, Chantal Mouffe, Ahmet Öğüt, Rubia Salgado, Pelin Tan, and the Silent Universities in Amman, Athens, Hamburg, London, Mülheim/Ruhr, and Stockholm.
