Letter from Brian Holmes to The Public School


“The Public School is developing a mode of collective self-education that could become very significant as the institutions freeze up in the security panic and the budget collapse. Building up this form of careful collaborative discourse, we can also start changing the other, looser or more formalized contexts in which we work. Although it is rather threatening and in no way easy to face, I see the economic crisis as a chance to spark changes that our society has been putting off for decades. We will try to measure both the depth of that inertia and the possibilities of the present, in a way that respects everybody’s real situation and their voice, while hopefully opening up new territories for alternative and oppositional practice.”
