Artists and organizers explore experimental learning initiatives fostering solidarity and dialogue
With a focus on labor organizing within the arts and tech industries,Software for Artists Book 3explores the potential of creating alternative networks of education and challenging the material conditions that prevent us from enacting new realities with dignity and security. When we defy existing models for institution-building, what possibilities for gathering can materialize and what kinds of learning and unlearning can we practice together? Released alongside Pioneer Works’ eighth Software for Artists Day and the School for Poetic Computation’s 10th anniversary in November 2023, the book convenes educators, labor organizers and artists exploring experimental learning initiatives to be in solidarity and conversation with each other.
