The last two decades have seen the flourishing of reflections and projects related to forms of education alternative to the academia. The fast and apparently inescapable implementation of the Bologna Agreement fuelled the urgency to think about strategies for the survival of the production of knowledge under the conditions of its standardisation, corporatisation and general flattening on quantifiable standards. The context of contemporary art has been a privileged stage for reflection and experimentation of these processes – starting from the so-called “educational turn” to the recent and diffused fascination for Undercommons by Harney and Moten, and passing through an incredible number of schools and educational platforms founded by artists or cultural producers.

In which terms can it still be relevant to talk about alternative education in the arts? What are the most long-lived arguments and concepts emerged in recent years, and how can they be inhabited to evolve our strategic behaviour in the future?
