The Study Sessions will be held in English.

This practice-based seminar is situated in the Master in Critical Studies program at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, but open to all who are interested.

The 4th Open Study Session will focus on extractivism and dispossession from a decolonial standpoint. For the first part of the session, three texts will be provided for a collective reading and writing exercise. In the second part of the session, we encourage you to contribute your insights and introduce a reference (a book, an article, an image, or a song) of your choice to initiate group discussion.

The seminar is anti-hierarchically structured. In Open Study Sessions we will not only deal with the content, but also with the way how we gather and discuss the topic.

At the end of January, students will present a larger Open Study Session, first at the Academy of Fine Arts and then at Kunsthalle Wien.
