‘This is different from the Hegelian thesis antithesis and synthesis- in that the points are not synthesis’s but internalized tense contradictions that need to be expanded
We are very pleased to be linked to The People’s School in Zagreb. Who are also reading the text and have similar aims in creating a common people’s culture.

“The IENBA teaches using a pedagogical approach based on the theories
of Herbert Read, John Dewey and Ovide Decroly. Their original
curriculum was devised by the student body who took over the running
of the school in the early 1960s. After being closed by the military
in 1973, it reopened in 1995 to continue a programme of art
education focused on fostering the development of creative and
aesthetically sensible citizens.”
