Can knowledge be simultaneously locally situated and globally relevant? How is it possible to approach knowledge as a collective practice through the modes of action that produce it, rather than through a hegemonic point of reference? What trajectories of knowledge are produced by situated, militant or emergent practices? The New Alphabet School is an experimental model of collective study that explores situated forms of knowledge, with stops in New Delhi, Athens, Porto, Rafah, Dakar, Warsaw and Berlin. Each gathering is dedicated to a practice and thus a form of knowledge production: Unlearning, Translating, Situating, Coding, Caring, Healing, Instituting, Survivance, Transmitting, Community-Building, Feralizing, and Commoning. This book presents contributions that emerged from these gatherings, while also providing an overview of current methods of practice-based research in the arts, activism and collective research.
