The Assignment Book by Luis Camnitzer

Hi everyone,

I’d like to invite you all to contribute to The Assignment Book []. It would be amazing if the website could be seeded by tomorrow evening’s opening. Per Christiane: “You can be ‘creative’ and your response to the conundrums or questions can take various forms — it doesn’t need to be text, it can be images or even links to outside materials that in some way ‘respond’ to the assignment”.

Here is an example of an assignment:

“Suggest geographic corrections to improve national wellbeing and explain.”

September 21 – October 16, 2011

Curated by Christiane Paul and Trebor Scholz

In The Assignment Book, Luis Camnitzer presents unresolved conundrums and questions. The exhibition is intended to stimulate critical multidisciplinary thinking on the questions raised and prompt visitors to leave responses that serve as new stimuli for dialogue. Like the blog format, the exhibition offers a platform for the artist, curators, and visitors to enter into conversation as equal partners, thereby de-institutionalizing learning and challenging the traditional role of the artist/teacher.

The Assignment Book is organized as part of the MobilityShifts International Future of Learning Summit (The New School, October 10-16,2011).
