Developing and executing projects becomes more and more of an ecomomic necessity as funding of daily work continually decreases. But it also creates the opportunity to focus on different daily experiences and work on them through different point of views and areas of expertise.
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.
