I'm doing my second bachelor in visual communication. My first was in polymer engineering , also I'm having a quite interesting academic journey. I come from Iran and it's my second semester in VC and in Germnay - Mentioning it because my background has had its part on shaping my worldview and my beliefs.
for many years I'd been apolitical, even though I come from a country where you just can't ignore politics. Politic and religion are highly connected in Iran and maybe that's why I was happy ignoring them both. Only now I know it was mainly because I was privileged enough (well, you know, with our standards. I was still a women living in Iran which is kinda fucked up) to afford not learning and selfish enough not to care. So I started relatively late to explore different ideas, different worldviews and really seeing everything that is wrong in my county and the world outside of it.
i don't like using labels.. but if you push me i'd say i'm anti capitalist and anti fascist.
In this class I'm mainly concentrating on learning about Anarchism and Anarcha-feminist.
Sources and inspirations so far:
Errico Malatesta - At the Cafe
Alexander Berkman - What Is Communist Anarchism?
