Short description: Frictious dictionary

Long description: A glossary or dictionary of words with definitions that are not intended to be static. As the meaning of words destabilize with popular usage, so does the frictionary accept and welcome contradiction, revision, addition, division, compositionism, entropy, and redundancy. The only guiding principle of the frictionary is that previous definitions, however erroneous, must not be erased. Errors are welcome for many reasons, and most especially because they are monuments to what is a continuous process of learning in common.

Used in the Frictionary of: 2020

→ read moreBeyond Social is a collaborative research and publishing platform for students, faculty, and friends of the WdKA Social Practices department. It is a platform for trial and error, for sharing knowledge, research, sketches, and failures.

Beyond Social connects contributors through a wiki. It is an open and collaborative platform. Anyone may contribute by commenting on existing articles, adding new articles and events, adding items to our Frictionary, and proposing other forms of wiki gardening and collaboration.


Social Practices The Social Practices is an interdisciplinary graduation profile at WdKA that offers four courses: Cultural Diversity, New Earth, Performative Action, and Powerplay.


Beyond Social is in the process of understanding how it functions as a collectively built research repository. As an archive of academic work carried out by teachers and students of the WdKA Social Practices department, Beyond Social is thinking about how:

1) To complexify the issue of Common knowledge without assuming that free access guarantees equal access, or that collective authorship guarantees equitable redis(at)tribution.
2) Can canons of categorization be extruded, exploded, and, most importantly, rebuilt. Categories must be questioned, but the tyranny of structurelessness must be resisted.
3) To make visible the work of the department in a way that is sensitive to the tensions of ownership vs coauthorship vs credit vs agency vs commoning vs copyother vs copyleft vs the right to copy vs [this canonical list of non-binary vs-es is unfinished and can be added to at length].

Beyond Social has many contributors, none of whom claim authorship over a platform that is built in common. It currently has no editorial board, as anyone can upload material without the need for editorial permission or review. It does however have two dedicated custodians: Alice Strete and Angeliki Diakrousi.


Beyond Social began as an initiative from Iris Schutten, Program Leader Social Practices WdKA (2013-2017), in collaboration with Kimmy Spreeuwenberg, Teacher and Coordinator of Hybrid Publishing at Willem de Kooning Academy (WdKA), University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam. Right from the start Beyond Social aimed at being a platform for a wider community than WdKA

It was built by André Castro and Manetta Berends, media artists and researchers who teach/have also taught at the Experimental Publishing masters of Piet Zwart Institute. Currently, they participate in the running of Varia, a space for developing collective approaches to everyday technology.
