University of Ignoramuses

To give more space to utopias and to the discussions surrounding the epistemic dimension of our praxis, maiz decided to found the University of Ignoramuses. The starting point of our university is the realization that everyone is ignorant, as long as bodies of knowledge are possessed and knowledge continues to be produced without a critical reflection of the power dimension and the violent processes of legitimization and de-legitimization of knowledge and without implementing the resulting consequences in praxis. Our utopia is the collaborative production of contra- hegemonic knowledge.


maiz produziert auch in eigenen Medien. Mit eigenen Veröffentlichungen im Diskurs über Migration, Gender, Arbeitswelt, Antirassismus, Bildung u.a. bezieht maiz kritisch Stellung: "Wir übernehmen bewusst unsere Definitionsmacht als Wissensproduzentinnen!" (Caixeta)

Weiters produziert maiz im maiz_studio in Kooperation mit dorftv und Radio FRO eigene Fernsehsendungen und Videobeiträge und eigene Audio- und Radiobeiträge.
