The Imaginary Border Academy (L’Académie de la frontière imaginaire) was
initiated at the Artivistic gathering in Montreal , 25-27 October, 2007;
Details of the manifesto and curriculum were developed in a workshop
hosted by Ralf Homann & Farida Heuck / Schleuser.net (DE), Nahed Mansour
(Montreal), Kayle Brandon / Duo.Irational (UK), The Boredom Patrol of
CIRCA (US), Mushon Zer-Aviv (IL), Andrew Paterson (SCO/FI), among others.
It is our aim to provide copyleft pedagogical resources for engaging all
forms of borders.
As was agreed with the clink of two Caribs by an incomplete decision
making body, the academy is within the tradition of Autonomous
Education, Free Universities, Community Education and Free Skools. The
academy strives to cultivate a non-hierarchical pedagogical approach to
understanding, subverting and undermining borders.
