Teaching the Teachers
The Weaving Politics symposium serves as a platform for TTT (Teaching the Teachers) within the frame of Jardin d'Europe, selecting specific lectures to attend and to discuss questions arising from theoretical, artistic or teaching practice in relation to the ideas put forward by the speakers at the symposium.

The aim with this TTT is to assemble different perspectives on theoretical and artistic practice, in order to generate some questions or further develop frameworks as to how politics and art making might relate in contemporary European performance today.

Participants: Rasmus Ölme, Tilman O'Donnell, Gabriel Schenke,
Franziska Aigner, Lilia Mestre, Elizabeth Waterhouse and Malin Elgàn.
