The Postgraduate Programme in Curating ZHdK, in cooperation with Jeanne van Heeswijk, presents the 7th installment of the Public Faculty series in Zurich. In this edition, the series comes to “Europe's Landlocked Island” of Switzerland to question the idea of borders, as well as notions requisite for the enforcement of this idea, such as security, solidarity, and compliance.
For four days, Public Faculty No 8, Los Angeles will be located on and around Hollywood Boulevard, where many segments of the public are to be found. The project will engage in informal conversations with passers-by on the desires and expectations for the future of the neighborhood. It will visually map out a dialog in text and drawings about those who are affected by the redevelopment of Hollywood, exploring the idea of publicness and its relation to active citizenship in our global cities.
The Queens Museum’s Open A.I.R. Artist Services Program invites artists, cultural and community organizers, educators, and community members invested in long-term work with immigrant communities, youth, communities of color, queer communities and low-income communities to join artist and activist Jeanne Van Heeswijk in the development of the Public Faculty no. 9, a multi-session collective learning experience. The Queens Museum has long prioritized embedded community work seeing itself as a neighbor in the community and valuing cross-disciplinary partnerships. QM believes in the importance of accessibility of public space and the need for community voices organizing around community issues. Jeanne Van Heeswijk has a long history of embedded work in various communities and a continued engagement around issues of public space and community organizing. Her work is developed alongside participants; she serves as an active facilitator, acknowledging the important knowledge already present in communities.
