Pinky Show

D.I.Y. Learning-Weapon:
 Context > Theory > Practice > Reflect (Repeat)

A four-day workshop, conducted by HR02 & HR03, human representatives of The Pinky Show

The Pinky Showis an education project in which animated cats ask foundational questions about contemporary social problems, do research to learn more about these problems, and then create videos, art, and ephemera to share what they’ve learned. The project was created in 2005 as a response to a simple question: “In the face of disaster-level human stupidity, what can ordinary nobodies like ourselves do to try to make things better?” This workshop, D.I.Y. Learning-Weapon: Context > Theory > Practice > Reflect (Repeat), will focus on the relationship between (tiny-scale, independent modes of critical inquiry) and [popular and radical modes of pedagogy]. Wie können "Do-It-Yourself"-Medienproduktionen als eine Form der Selbstbildung genutzt werden? How can D.I.Y. media production be used as a form of self-education? What constitutes legitimate forms of research for D.I.Y. media projects? How can individuals or tiny organizations make helpful contributions to society, history, and all those other important, big things? What are some of the theoretical and practical relationships between independent media production and becoming more human?

The objective is to help participants conceptualize, plan, and execute for themselves long-term projects, knowledge useful for cultural workers working within in a wide rage of institution-types.

No specific educational or occupational background is required for this workshop.
