School in Common is a self—organised school initiated in 2017 by Alen Ksoll (Stockholm) and Rosa Paardenkooper (Utrecht). Combining ideas from critical pedagogy with the core values of commoning*, we set out to create an environment for discussing, learning and being in common, fostering collaboration, mutual recognition and support. Our Curriculum is realised through art, gatherings, workshops, walks, talks, collective cooking and publications.

(*)We think of commoning as social relations that reflect solidarity, friendship and care—taking. It motivates us in shaping concrete alternatives - albeit small - to capitalist and patriarchal hegemony, in continuous dialogue with feminist, queer and de-colonial thought.

In the past we collaborated with: Art+FeminismBotkyrka Konsthall,, Index, Maria Guggenbichler, Stockholm University, Wikipedia Foundation, Casco Art Institute, etc.
