Bains::Connective is an artistic working and presentation space located in the ancient swimmingpool of Vorst|Forest, in Brussels.
In the context of Some Political Art, B::C invited Jakob Jakobsen to talk about self-organization and autonomy in knowledge production and education. He will use his own concrete experiences with the Copenhagen Free University and the Free Class as examples of self-education, leading to a discussion about possible paths for autonomous educational initiatives and institutions in the shadow of the current neo-liberal colonisation of the educational sector.
The lecture is on Monday april 28, 2008 and is free.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
