2 day. The expectations of the track. What are expectations in general? talking about utopias, future, goals, theories and praxis. How to transmit a utopian desire? egocentric self who convinces/persuale to approach his goal and collective self who accepts and wants the divergion of the goal (fork principle). Reflecting on the collaboration of the persons that suggested the tracks. Explore pedagogies that "produce" these "collective subjectivities" and not "leader pesonas". Afternoon idea: make a printable reader Networks of Trust (PGP)
Attempts for semi-directed conversations (not-so-utopian open source). 1. Raising one question to another, trying one circle.. 2. Asking another to read an unread text and summerize...
Texts discussed, and the conversation was generally about the differences (or not) between free and open source software, technofetishism, ideologies of openness, and non-hierarchical pedagogies.

someone should write about cakes tribute to the track that never happened "radical cake production"/"the considerate cake track"
adelina should write about cakes
Cake: food with a taste dominated by a particular class of chemicals extracted from certain intensively grown plants heavily extracted through the use of slave and indentured labor during the history, continuing in the present day, of oppressive imperial/colonial regimes of Europe and North America, chemicals that produce mild feelings of euphoria, as well as increased risk of diabetes and obesity in those who consume it; food with a pleasanty soft texture and a slight resistance on the tounge, often delivered to recipients in exchange for money or as a "gift" under conditions of oppression, including gender inequality in the home, unequal labor relations, and/or in celebration of friendship, collectivity, or as a memorial of certain significant life events, especially those which are involved in reproducing gendered domestic relationships, such as birth and marriage; especially in the context of food consumption following a meal, often in excess of necessary nutritional intake, and conferring pleasure and a feeling of satisfaction. in relation to autonomy (and its difference from autarchy) , a set of ersatz-ingredients were produced in the poortgebouw common kitchen: http://192.168.73.188:9001/p/not-so-utopian-cake

but do we write about these? or link? or...?how how how for instance: a pad option to cross out stuff and leave only the questions/examples that better sum up/make accessible the ideas/track whatever or delete//make it white-->we never get rid of stuff, we always multiply add up infinetely (in fact the strike-through would 'delete' by adding something more...)
feedback on the organisation of relearn, the "theme" co-autonomies, the multi-track experiment, the place, local events, etc (kind of reroam)
How does relearn position itself relative to contexts in which we choose, and the context of all the other summer schools that exist? Relearn is to re-think what it is to learn / skills v. knowledge. Co-autonomy Critique of technology (through technology) Critique of education (through pedagogy) Critique of the Institution (through autonomy) Performative critiques of authoritarianism Practise the theories and theorise the practises
Feminist methodology at work (embodied) Conversations between people with very different skill sets are possible here that is not possible in many other contexts Movement rather than a school: intentions, attitudes, diversions, and the passage of ideas.
Co-autonomies (for me this "theme" was an introduction of relearn in general and not just for this year session, I mean all these relearns are co-autonomies through time, space and cyberspace)
Place: history of Poortgebouw and common "mentalities" with Relearn (collectivities, pedagogies...) Local events: Eetcafe Relearn public presentation + Autonomous archive presentation (maybe add a description of what it is) Stad in de Maak (presenting works of participants and presentation of the Stad in de Maak history/organisation/..)
