learnscapes midterm

unsealing floating

19. July 2023, 12:00-21:00h
Floating University, Lilienthalstr. 32, Berlin

interactive presentation of student works
no registration required

The floating learnscapes are shaped by student groups from all kind of disciplines that exercise their academic program on site. At the midterm, students that have been working at Floating and engaging with the site this year will present their (preliminary) work. This season we aim to reflect practices of un-, re- and co-learning through the notion of unsealing – questioning established planning processes, breaking out of institutional borders and entrenched learning methods, developing new ways of practice-based knowledge production, envisioning alternative futures and narratives and exploring spatial transformations. Join us for a day full of actions, interactions and presentations!
