Adelita Husni-Bey | visibleproject | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
The criminalization of squatting, gentrification, real estate speculation, rising rent-wage ratios and the sale of public assets to private investors are facets of an ideological shift which sees the millennial apparatus of private property reign over any other kind of stipulation. White Paper: The Law (2015) is holding public meetings to write a functioning, legally-binding convention on the use-value of housing with a focus on squatting, while problematising the manner in which law functions in relation to citizenship, democracy and precarity. Currently developed with Casco (presently co-funded by the ECF), it focuses on contesting the enclosures of private property imposed by squatting bans in Europe that foreclosed the means of affordable housing and rent-free space for living and civil disobedience. Paid ‘committees’ are called upon to write a part of the convention in different cities across the country, after a research period with a local organisation. The meetings are held in different locales (squats, local arts and activist spaces) always involving new publics. The only constant members are the artist and a jurist who works in the field who helps to put the thoughts of those present into legally binding terms. Those who are usually excluded from the drafting of such documents, such as students, squatters, sans-papiers and precarious workers are invited to take part. The process is documented with audio, photography and process-displaying posters that articulate the intricacies of reaching consensus. Once the convention is revised and agreed upon it will serve as a contracting document between parties (municipalities, states, cities, groups and legal entities) who will have the legal capacity to use the document as a binding guideline.

Welcome, StoryCorps

Welcome, StoryCorps | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
As we gear up for the opening of the special exhibition Corita Kent and the Language of Pop, we’re also preparing to welcome the national oral history project StoryCorps to campus.

On September 4, 5, and 6, StoryCorps’ signature MobileBooth (an Airstream trailer) will be parked at Harvard’s Science Center plaza to record interviews with people from all walks of life. Inside the recording studio on wheels, participants will have a private 40-minute session to tell their stories. In typical StoryCorps interview fashion, pairs (usually family or friends) will have the opportunity to share memories and ask each other questions in an intimate, conversational format. Participants are especially encouraged to reflect on experiences inspired by artist Corita Kent and our exhibition of her work.

Kent lived in Boston from 1968 until her death in 1986, and in 1971 she created a bold, pop art design for the Boston Gas (now National Grid) tank located alongside I-93 south of downtown Boston. This oral history project, a partnership between StoryCorps, the Harvard Art Museums, and National Grid, aims to reach those who may have had local knowledge of Kent or who have lived in communities near the iconic gas tank. The stories we gather will be preserved for future generations.

Interview appointments are limited; sign up and learn more here.

Corita Kent and the Language of Pop is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and major corporate support from National Grid. Harvard Common Spaces has also provided support for the StoryCorps project.

StoryCorps is a national nonprofit organization with a mission to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve their stories. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 55,000 interviews with over 95,000 participants. Each conversation is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
