This is a fascinating note, and one that I still can not comprehend in the context of this reading, but where is there a boundary between “art” and the role of “social practice”. Yes, art is social practice and exists in every moment ...

Social Art Practices
Through the use of various strategies including "urban interventions, utopian proposals, guerrilla architecture, "new genre" public art, social sculpture, project-based community practice, interactive media, service dispersals, and street performance."[1] the primary material of social practice is person-to-person exchange, interaction, or participation. These situations, organizations and events can involve various media including photography, video, drawing, text, sound, sculpture, and performance art. Within the art making process, the practice emphasizes people in relationships to each other and their surroundings, "focusing on engagement and accountability between the audience and the artist"

Update From Studio Rev

When New Deal Labor Laws passed in the 1930s, Southern congressmen intentionally excluded domestic workers from receiving basic labor protections. Domestic workers were first granted minimum wage and overtime pay in the 1970s. Now, after protections for domestic workers did not improve for over 30 years, the tide is finally turning! New York passed the first landmark Bill of Rights in 2010 with other states soon to follow. Now, nannies, housekeepers, and caregivers across the country—along with employers and allies—are rallying for respect, recognition, and basic labor protections. Responding to this context, the NannyVan helps accelerate the movement for domestic workers’ rights. A public art + interactive media project created by Studio REV- (lead artist: Marisa Jahn) in collaboration with The National Domestic Workers Alliance, The NannyVan is a bright orange mobile design lab and sound studio that “accelerates the movement for domestic workers’ rights.” With its pull-out table, colorful design, bum-shaking NannyVan jams, and carpeted walls/sound booth, The NannyVan convenes workers and allies alike. The goal? To create enlivening and informative resources, from multilingual flyers to interactive mobile media such as Domestic Worker App, a public art and know-your-rights app (think Click and Clack on NPR’s “Car Talk” but for nannies) accessible by any kind of phone—even a pre-paid cell phone.

After an inaugural journey through Arizona and California, The NannyVan makes its East Coast debut this spring with stops at worker centers and family-friendly cultural venues in NYC, Boston, and DC. NYC Launch Party at Downtown Community Television 87 Lafayette Street, NYC 10013 April 24, 2014, 7–10pm Featuring The NannyVan + Domestic Worker App alongside two other interactive media projects that draw attention to different facets of immigration: Immigrant Nation (director: Theo Rigby) and Who is Dayani Cristal?

Event co-presenters: MIT Open Doc Lab, MIT Center for Civic Media, StoryCode, and NuLawLab at Northeastern University School of Law Partner: The National Domestic Workers Alliance NannyVan workshop at Open Engagement Queens Museum, NYC May 16–18 The NannyVan + Domestic Worker App builds off of the success of a New York version of the app called New Day New Standard, which launched in May 2012 as part of a citywide campaign led by domestic worker groups following the passage of the state’s landmark Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. Each month since then, the hotline has received from 400 to 1,200 calls each month, and has been featured in BBC, GOOD Magazine, and parenting blogs; and presented at the White House, universities, and film festivals such as Tribeca Film. REV- (as in to rev an engine) is a nonprofit studio whose public art projects combine creativity, bold ideas, and sound research to address critical issues. We are a women and minority-led team of artists, techies, media makers, low-wage workers, immigrants, and teens producing work to impact the issues we face. Additional partners: Brazilian Immigration Center, Arizona State University Art Museum, Hand in Hand: Domestic Employer Association, National Employment Law Project, Community Development Project of the Urban Justice Center, The California and Massachusetts Coalitions of Domestic Workers Supporters: Tribeca Film Institute New Media Fund and the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Funding Exchange, North Star Fund, Franklin Furnace, MIT Community Service Fund, and MIT Council for the Arts

Brecht Forum to Close After 39 Years | The Indypendent

Brecht Forum to Close After 39 Years | The Indypendent | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
For 39 years the Brecht Forum has provided a vital space for Marxist popular education and movement building. Earlier today Brecht's Board of Directors sent out an email entitled "An Ending Is Also a Beginning" announcing that the organization will soon be closing its doors. The closing was brought on by several factors -- a difficult economic climate, soaring rents and the debts Brecht incurred at its former home in the West Village which it left for Brooklyn last fall. Brecht's Board of Directors will hold a public meeting at the Brooklyn Commons on Wednesday April 16 at 7:30. For more, here's the full statement released by the Board:
