Also we contributed to Video Conferencing Overkill Disease 2020 (ViCOD20*), among others, with two online conferences. In contrast, the Beyond Crisis Conference in April was full of fresh energy and high motivation to make use of the transformative potential of the corona crisis and to explore euphorically the possibilities of online conferencing. The follow-up conference Care Beyond Crisis in December was still creative and relevant, but the euphoria has given way to fatigue. 

The first Beyond Crisis Conference generated inspiring outcomes. Just one example of these outcomes is the Toolkit for Designing Actions in Times of Multiple Crises by Alastair Fuad-Luke and Seçil Uğur Yavuz, based on the action outputs of 21 workshops held in the participatory online conference. We decided to do proper proceedings for the December edition. We are still working on these and plan to publish them in May/June.


so far

the virus keeps on spreading – a disaster for many, and tiring even for the more privileged. We keep on living and working… yet another lockdown semester, with hope of opening up soon.

Online-exhibition and publication on the project Transforming the City by Care by 30 students of the first semester, Karl Emilio Pircher, Seçil Uğur Yavuz and Kris >< Krois together with OfficineVispa and other actors from the Don Bosco district, supported by the Municipality of Bolzano.

By Design or by Disaster 2021

Conference, 30 Sept – 4 Oct
We plan to do our annual conference at the beginning of the semester, this time (hopefully) in the beautiful analogue world in/around Bolzano–Bozen and in Obervinschgau–Alta Val Venosta. We will try to combine the best of both dimensions, the analogue and the online one. The focus is not fixed yet. Proposal: "Working Transformation – making eco-socially transformative work economically viable, or transforming economies as livelihoods". Feedback welcome. Call coming asap.

Lightness & luck ><
