Much has been said about a crisis in higher education. Universities and art schools are often referred to as battlefields under continued pressure to adapt in response to the political climate and our changing economic situation. What are the potentials harboured by other possible ways of organising education and understanding the work of studying? What kinds of relationships take form when we organise ourselves?
