Applications are invited for PRAXIS 2024, the second edition of fluent’s educational apparatus, a structure for independent studies to take place from September 18 through December 22, 2024.

Following the same in–person format, it will run during 14 weeks (180 contact hours), aiming to instigate a theoretical and practice–based learning process that dives into the systems that constitute our material and immaterial lifes. The programme is structured in four dimensions—or learning modules—directed by:

–I Module: Vital Dimension, Michael Marder.
–II Module: the Dimension of Language and Identity, Anne Boyer.
–III Module: Structural Dimension, Fred Moten and Stefano Harney
–IV Module: Corporeal & Moving Dimension, Andrea Rodrigo. 

And it will feature a faculty of guest professors including CAConrad, Joy James, Manuel Segade, Yayo Herrero, PRAXIS I, The State of Reza Abdoh, Hypatia Vourloumis, Chus Martínez, Alejandro Alonso Díaz, Quinn Latimer, Itziar Okariz and many others. 

The second edition of the programme continues an ongoing enquire on the making of forms—social, aesthetic, linguistic, political, performative—as a means to propitiate knowledge and justice, in this time of genocide, cruel devastation and an increasingly morally-wounded world. Tracing its genealogy from PRAXIS I, this enquire considers the material and immaterial conditions of such forms, as well as the role of the arts and humanities in developing socially transformative prospects that repair the social realm from reduced listening. In this, the words of Audre Lorde resonate with the logics and dynamics that organize and structure PRAXIS: “(…)it is a vital necessity of our existence. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change, first made into language, then into idea, then into moretangible action. (…) It is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought. The farthest external horizons of our hopes and fears are cobbled by our poems, carved from the rock experiences of our daily lives.”

Building from this ethos, the programme is open to a maximum of twenty participants and encourages applications from different fields of knowledge (artists, poets, curators, agroecologists, filmmakers, sociologists, theorists, choreographers, writers, philosophers, land-practitioners, performers, activists, anthropologists and other arts and humanities-related researchers or professionals). The diverse spectrum of practices seeks to unfold an experimental, ephemeral community of learning thus providing participants with free accommodation throughout the programme’s duration. 

Applicants should take into consideration:
