16.08.2024 bis 23.08.2024

“Radical horizons - Exploring communal living, Queer anticapitalism, and anarchy in a changing world”

Welcome to Summer School 2024, an immersive experience that explores the foundations of communalism, alternative living, and the intricacies of anti-capitalist ideologies. Dive into workshops covering topics such as building resilient communities, the basics of anticapitalism, and exploring alternative living arrangements outside the conventional capitalist framework.

Register now!

Delve into the realms of communalism, where shared values and cooperation take centre stage. Unpack the intersection of queer identity and anti-capitalist principles and examine the practice of squatting as a form of resistance. From the basics of anarchy as a political philosophy to hands-on guidance on creating sustainable, cooperative living spaces, this summer school offers a dynamic blend of theory and practical insights. Join us in shaping a future where communities thrive outside the confines of capitalism, and diverse voices contribute to a more inclusive and equitable society. We’re excited for this seminar – and for your registration!

The programme is developed by the International Team of Kurt Löwenstein Education Centre. We will work in track-sessions every day. But we will leave plenty of time per day for other parts of the programme participants self-organise, with the help of the International Team, but also themselves. In committees we organise our free time and evenings. We will have time to share workshops also participants bring with them and spend one day on a field trip in Berlin. Much more will develop and happen.

The seminar will be conducted in English; thus, it will be rather hard to understand the instructions and fully participate if your English is limited. However, you may help each other out in delegations.
