The paper title is:
Melting Down Identity: Towards a Pedagogy of Complexity (page 68 of the book).

In the paper there is a in depth discussion of some cases connected to the activity of Trasformatorio and an advocacy of methods of learning that engage with complexity bypassing common biases. Federico calls this “pedagogy for complexity” and is a non hierarchical way to set out on learn and do journeys with a open mind and curiosity and, at the same time, put to use the abilities of artists to engage in collective transformation.

Cases included in the article are taken from LGJ playing, Trasformatorio methodology for innovation as set up in the NGI-Ledger program and an account of Federico’s experience at Documenta 15.
