Avtonomi Akadimia – founded and organised by Joulia Strauss – can usually be found in the Akadimia Platonos, the public garden in Athens where Plato taught almost 2,500 years ago. Avtonomi Akadimia will take place in Berlin for the first time, within the exhibition. In various workshops and lectures, shamans, masters and curanderos, climate scientists, philosophers and artists will hybridise contradictory forms of knowledge and generate an indigenised academy as the down-to-earth of the European educational system.
