Study Session: Rudzienko

Thursday, October 27, 6:30pm

Responding to Gallery TPW’s current exhibition, Sharon Lockhart’s film installation Rudzienko, educator and curator Karyn Sandlos will host a study session thinking through the lens of critical pedagogy, psychoanalysis and ethics. We’ll gather together to collectively experience Lockhart’s work and more broadly consider artistic/educational collaborations between adults and children/youth. Working through philosopher Hannah Arendt’s demand that the meeting of adults and children is an ethical obligation yet to be accomplished, we’ll consider such spaces of collaboration, and their representations, as states of becoming rather than a set of fixed relations.

This study session is free and open to anyone, but advance registration is requested.
To RSVP, please email Daniella Sanader at or call 416.645.1066.
