This video work is a dreamy, haunting piece that looks at the role our personal stories play in the making of history, as well as the actual political potency of our feelings. Part of 'Learning from COVID19: Reflections on knowledge-related commons and practices of self-organization amidst COVID19.'
dream#1 2020 explores questions around the role our personal stories play in the making of history, as well as the actual political potency of our feelings.
As artists, it is urgent to start believing that conversations vital to our practices, to our living, can be indeed taken out of the university. Offline and online, we are still able to reach each other.

“Learning from COVID19: Reflections on knowledge-related commons and practices of self-organization amidst COVID19” is the result of an open call for contributions launched by School of Commons in late April 2020. Shortly after COVID19 put much of the world into lockdown, the contributions form a collection of observations and different practices of learning, self-organisation, and building community amidst a global pandemic. The submitted contributions are varied in form and content, and have not been curated in any way, instead offering space to the diverse experiences and responses of all contributors.
