Towards a Transversal Pedagogy
Florian Malzacher, Ahmet Ögüt & Pelin Tan (Eds.)
Initiated by conceptual artist Ahmet Ögüt in 2012 as an autonomous educational platform for migrant academics, researchers and lecturers whose credentials would not otherwise be recognized, The Silent University includes branches in Amman, Athens, Hamburg, London, Mulheim/Ruhr and Stockholm. The second book from Sternberg on alternative learning centers, this comprehensive reader situates this much-needed educational initiative within the wider framework of migration policies, critical pedagogy, institutional engagement and socially engaged art projects. Including lectures, student statements and descriptions of the achievements and struggles of its current branches, it also serves as introduction for anyone wanting to be involved in the Silent University as contributors, lecturers, students in the existing branches, or by initiating new SUs: a need which is becoming urgent in more and more cities and countries all around the world. With contributions by Florian Malzacher, María do Mar Castro Varela, Chantal Mouffe, Ahmet Ögüt, Rubia Salgado and Pelin Tan.

It’s 2011, late summer. All over Europe, young people are occupying central public squares to demonstrate for more social justice. But in Berlin, their agenda is different. As the Completists gather at Alexanderplatz, it turns out that they aspire for justice primarily on an intimate, sexual level. They believe that only when the redistribution of material wealth includes the equal chance of finding sex and love—no matter how elderly, disabled or ugly you are—will communism become a reality. Set during the 2011 Occupy movement, Complete Love is a tale of a love revolution started by an army of activists willing to bring justice and equality for all into an intimate and sexual level. The newest edition in the tongue-in-cheek series Solutions, created and edited by international prankster / deep thinker Ingo Niermann, this wryly entertaining book explores the reality and the absurdities of daily life. Complete Love marks the 13th issue in this truly entertaining series.
