In 1961, after walking and hitchhiking several thousand miles across Latin America, a former catholic Austrian priest called Ivan picked Cuernavaca, Mexico, as the place to build the Centre for Intercultural Documentation (CIDOC). The CIDOC became a place to explore issues such as the negative effects of schooling, the radical monopoly of the dominant technologies of education, the critique to energy consumption and medical institutions, as well as the examination of alternative standards by which to judge ‘development’. It was the beginning of the sixties. Ivan chose a little town called Ocotepec as the place to settle. The indigenous social features of Ocotepec inspired his ideas about conviviality, hospitality and friendship. The CIDOC closed in 1976. Ivan left Cuernavaca and became an itinerant philosopher.
