IASPIS is announcing the Urgent Pedagogies Issue#2: Urgencies, and invites you to the launch. Together with invited guests we will share experiences on decolonial practice and discourses, from diverse continents and argumentations on multiple scales of institutional urgencies.

Participants include Malkit Shoshan, María do Mar Castro Varela, Saphira Shure, Ana María León, Andrew Herscher, Tom Holert, Mauricio Corbalán, Pio Torroja and Ou Ning.

There are many local and historical conditions that influence and urge contemporary and future needs of critical practices. Each planetary scale of territories fosters its own urgencies in response to conflict, racism, segregation, settler colonialism, climate crisis and struggles for indigenous rights. How is it possible to engage in such histories and current local struggles through pedagogical platforms, initiatives and advocacy? How can multiple scales of colonial pressure be mapped and how can modalities of artistic and design practices react? How can the learning environment be a safe zone of and for counter-constructions? How does collective learning empower communality? This issue brings forward practitioners, authors and researchers that discuss urgencies through different cases and modalities of learning and unlearning.

Urgent Pedagogies is initiated and organised by IASPIS, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee's International Programme for Visual and Applied Arts. The project is developed and pursued by Magnus Ericson, curator and Project Manager responsible for the design, crafts and architecture programme at IASPIS and Pelin Tan, sociologist, curator and Professor, Fine Arts Faculty, Batman University, Turkey.
