I agree with Gregers that the term workshop is a rather vague term. I
think at the minimum the goal of a workshop is to care for active
involvment of all participants. In this case this would mainly mean
some general discussion. Also usually workshops are planned for a
longer time than for instance a talk - I'd say at least 2 hours with
no upper limit.
But I would like to join you... and Gregers.

This knowledge lab will address art and ways of critically thinking about
our world. Within this broad region of enquiry, the lab will encompass
notions of life and art as a political commitment, the influence art can

For this I'd think it would make sense to have two parts: In the first
part we explain some central Oekonux ideas. I think this is necessary
because only then we can assume some common understanding among the
participants. In a second part we then discuss how these ideas can
relate to art.
Would this make sense to you? Other ideas?
Mit Freien Grüßen
