During a week-long educational performance, around 200 students from educational institutes around the world engage on topics such as the commodification of knowledge, critique of creativity, and functioning of edu-industries in today’s cognitive capitalism. Learning Place sets out to strip the dominant educational practice of its self-evident normality and thus foster its critique and necessary transformation.
