In the 20th century, being avant-garde also always implied: becoming a master of unlearning. Where nothing should stay the old same, one has to, above all, get oneself out of the routine to continue doing things as before. Avant-garde deprogramming fiercely attacked false habits with forgetting, repressing, annihilating, tabula rasa… Unlearning was supposed to mean: making a clear cut and separating once and for all. For the Digital Bauhaus Summit in Weimar Martin Kiel and Stephan Porombka think about more contemporary forms of unlearning But they do not do this by trying to find a general framework for the practice of deprogramming. Rather, with their pop-up institute they programmatically deal with individual cases. Whoever wants to unlearn something, will enter into a research dialogue aimed at developing new exercises und narratives of one’s own learning.
