RADICAL PEDAGOGY – The global backlash against universities and academics, in the forms of extreme marketization (as in the UK), nepotism (Italy, Greece) and violent state repression (Turkey and Hungary) has led to the worldwide collapse of public education and the privatization of knowledge. In this context, there is an urgent need to both reclaim the public role of universities and of commoning of cultural production through alternative institutional forms. In fact, the first priority of the Institute of Radical Imagination is to devise its own institutional framework, mission and modus operandi at the crossroad of knowledge production, art and activism.
