"Everyone is Friends With Paulo Freire," at PS122 Gallery in NYC /USA

June 2-24th.

We are creating an archive of responses to Paulo Freire's pedagogical project, which linked education to social change through strategies such as dialogical action, developing transformative consciousness, praxis, and the rejection of the traditional "banking" model of education with the aim to "liberate the oppressed".

This research-based exhibition aims at understanding the influence of Freire's theories in contemporary cultural and pedagogical production in a pressing time characterized by global, dominant, neo-liberal policies that prioritize markets over individuals. It also explores our role as artists and educators in creating alternatives and counter-knowledge.

HOMEWORK is a year long collaboration between artists Ditte Lyngkaer Pedersen, Jeuno J.E Kim, Carlos Motta and Lize Mogel, which investigates the relationships between art, politics and pedagogy in a series of artwurl.org issues, and programs at PS122 Gallery and in the Contemporary Art Center in Aarhus, DK. HOMEWORK is funded by the Danish Arts Council's DaNY Arts Grant with support from PS122 Gallery.
