about 2faced1.com

"2FACED1 is a visionary digital network,  a loose collective with members in Europe, Africa and North America, bound together by what we call ‘stereotypophobia’."


 

Stereotypophobia

“It is all about critical questioning of what identity really is. Would you be the same person in another context? Does society have certain expectations on you based on traditional parameters like class, gender, color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and so on? And how much do these expectations affect your so-called self? Every forward thinking person are aware of those things, its a gift which  also make you relate to other peoples struggles.”

A Community Without Losing Individuality?

Post date Sun 15 Mar 2015 6:15 PM

 

2FACED1 presents: a Rhizomatic Romance TALK / Dinner / Workshop #1

A Community Whitout Losing Individuality?

How the hell does a stereotypophobe fit into a collective? Many of us has spent years fighting for space to be ourselves, and tend to shy away from contexts of community from the fear of losing one’s individuality, one’s uniqueness. Some feel uneasy towards being labeled and bunched together in a group, after experiencing many years of discriminating labels picked by others. If mixing that with diffuse borderlines between economic and other values, then, without alliances it easily can turn into neverending underdog-perspectives, a lack of view on own privileges and an obsessive protection of “own territories”. With 2FACED1, we hope to still be individuals emphasizing similarities in the approach to traditional identity indicators rather than in the set identity indicators themselves, which also opens up for relating to other peoples reality.

Robin Carlsson & Christofer Gradin Franzén will come together for a talk about collectives, individuality, vulnerability, egos, brands, stereotypes, Pop Culture and collective intelligence and ideas for future. (In English)

After the talk we will have a short workshop table for table, to exchange thoughts with all participants (in Swedish, and in English if neeeded)


~ Christofer Gradin Franzén ~

has a PhD in both psychology and economics and is, in true 2FACED1 spirit, interested in weaving together different perspectives and seeing processes and structures from different angles simultaneously.

He is the co-creator of Hoffice, a movement that lets people without a fixed working place share structured and inspirational working hours, by utilizing each other’s homes - completely free of charge. He wrote a master’s thesis in economics about micro-entrepreneurs within the tourism field in Gambia, and concerning the possibilities of social and ecological sustainability. This led to him to Sri Lanka, where he worked with social development projects within the grassroots organization Sarvodaya, which has its origins in Buddhism.

“I think these areas of knowledge: psychology and buddhism, meditation in particular, are the most important for our social development processes today. To me, they are about how we will create a sustainable, more loving and beautiful society without being perished by the systems we have already created.”

Christofer is also one of the developers behind the psychological board game Cohero, which is designed to help building the organizations of the future: where self sufficient and committed individuals each contribute with their unique abilities and dedication. The world is facing enormous challenges as well as fantastic opportunities - to handle these we need new models and approaches. Through clear individual and collective visions, great personal responsibility, participation and independence - success is created together, in tune with the world around us and the environment. Is this compatible with 2FACED1?

Adding to this, Christofer has 15 years of experience from coaching basketball and working with management development issues within the field.



~ Robin Carlsson ~

also known as the artist Robyn, spent the early years of her life with her parents in a traveling theatre collective. As a teenage pop artist she went to the US on her own, and has since then successfully managed to create her own space within the music industry, especially through the founding of her own record label ten years ago. Her music and her live performances are characterized by an innovative approach to norms and technology. Robin has built what many would agree to call one of Sweden’s strongest personal brands, something which in part has helped finance her creative process and music production.

Her many collaborations with other artists, most recently Kindness, bears witness to a need for a context, as does her connection to 2FACED1. Robin has a unique feeling for the spirit of the times, an ability to reach out to people, along with a special talent to draw emotion and intimacy with her music - what place could such tools hold in a context outside of the “entertainment business”?

Don't have the time /money for this occasion? The talks will turn into a pod available for all, and we're looking into possibilities to collect digital feedback.
