The School of Disobedience is a Berlin-based graduate school that is global in outlook, international in background, trans-disciplinary in work, innovative, radical, experimental and engaged.
They offer seminars to an interested public that are part learning experience, part laboratory, embracing the idea of the workshop and combining theory and practice in a way that aims at new ways of knowledge production and the creation of solutions. They focus on four key topics: climate change, migration, blockchain and AI, and their goal is to design seminars that address at least two of these interrelated key topics in their design and ambition.
The School of Disobedience is temporarily hosted by the Volksbühne Berlin. It was founded by Armen Avanessian and Georg Diez in cooperation with the Nemetschek Foundation and it is free of tuition and open to everybody.
