Mannheim, Library (Germany)
The Pre-Texts project continues to make progress in Germany. Led by the Mannheim library team, all schools in the city received an email about the Pre-Texts and got the opportunity to have the workshops implemented in their place. The local team is scheduling the workshops since September 13th for the schools that have already shown interest.
Yilmaz Holtz Ersahin coordinated with Sina Weschke and Lina Seiss a Pre-Texts workshop in the Mannheim Library, Germany. 20-24 people participated in 6 sessions starting in Ma . They read "The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths" by Jorge Luis Borges and "Discipline & Punish" by Michel Foucault.
The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths by Jorge Luis Borges
Discipline & Punish by Michel Foucault.
Learning about Pre-Texts was a unique experience for all the participants of the Mannheim Workshop. Leaving behind usual patterns of thoughts seemed to be the hardest part of all because Pre-Texts is such a different approach on teaching and learning. Now we are excited to see how our own realization of the workshop will turn out and how people in Germany will react to it.
