Repair is probably the most urgent task we are currently facing (repair in English, reparieren in German, also in German: wiederherstellen (restore), erneuern (renew), heilen (heal), wiedergutmachen (make amends).
How can repair be thought of and implemented in such a way that changes would be sustainably possible both in the present and in the future? How can we see social change as a duty, as an act of care and dedication, as well as of slowing down time? What strategies are there to help us avoid giving up?
Can we learn and work together (across all ages and cultural, religious, class and educational boundaries), and find each other across both visible and invisible social boundaries and positions, through some kind of form of care and repair? Can resilience be gained through the visibility and awareness of our scars? And: Can art help us to hear the delicate tones and voices of the in-between and to gain the ability to create a utopia? With the program, Klassen für Alle: Assembly of Repair, the University of Applied Arts Vienna would like to invite any and All interested, to join them in the search for questions and answers regarding processes and practices for learning together towards a better present and future.
Klasse für Alle is a new program of continuing education, created by the University of applied Arts Vienna to opening up their institutes and departments towards all those who are interested in discussing, reflecting upon, and redesigning of our society. The urgency of current existential dangers requires collective action and dialogue. We invite people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds, from all professional fields, with or without previous education, and with a diverse range of skills and interests, to work with us on building a present and future worth living. In Klasse für Alle, we will learn from and with each other, and with as little hierarchy as possible. Artists and other specialists (from both within and outside the University) will lead and accompany this learning. Mutual appreciation and respect for different opinions will form the basis for this cooperation.
