*The Second Summit of the Free/Slow University of Warsaw will be devoted
to reflection on the transformations in the field of science and art.*
The three-day meeting will gather educators, artists, activists and
culture theorists from the entire Europe. During the Congress we will
work on studies of specific problems pertaining to a critical analysis
of system-related conditions in a comparative perspective. *This year’s
FSUW Congress is to serve the purpose of mapping mechanisms of
resistance and searching for alternatives to the transformation of
independent institutions of culture and universities into effective and
profit-oriented enterprises.

The proceedings of the Summit will be accompanied by afternoon events
open for the public:* Jan Simon’s exhibition “Four Pata-economic
Undertakings”, presenting the principles of alternative economics, and
the premiere of the new translation of the notorious book by Ivan Illich
Deschooling Society. Jan Simon’s exhibition will feature, among others,
“Zollskulptur” – sculpture made of smuggled cigarettes, part of the
project “A Survey of Lotto Systems. Mind’s Struggle with the World” and
the work “Lagos Transfer” on display at the Museum of Art in £ódŸ.
Participants of the debate accompanying the premiere of the new
translation of Illich’s Deschooling Society: Jan Sowa, Przemys³aw
Czapliñski and Piotr Laskowski.
