3. A shadow seminar curriculum purposes
The shadow seminar teach of survival in a nearby future, non-humans and humans all included. The shadow seminar introduces methods and concepts of informal activities that aim toward making transdisciplinary outcomes possible inside formal educations such as institutionalized art educations. This is of importance today when new ways of ethical and sustainable ways of living and understanding the world are needed for adapting to new environments and climates of the future. It does so by introducing itself as a parallel and informal shadow seminar that runs along(in)inside  the formal seminar. If we are lucky (depending on perspective of course) the institution as a whole, and all taking part within the institution, will be infected in some way. By taking part in the shadow seminar the participants can act from an in-ground position (institutional underground) within the frameworks of formal education and institutional art and art education. A shadow seminar claim to make real experiments and change possible, and can help prepare and take part in creating futures.
