MONDAY 9/20 *10:30am*  zoom:


Sara will examine the failure of craftivism without organizing and its tendency to lower our political horizon of possibilities. What work can craftivism do, and what work can it not do?

Sara Clugage’s art and writing practices focus on political issues in craft and food, recently centered on a series of salon dinners that examine economic models in art history. She is the editor-in-chief of Dilettante Army (an online journal for visual culture and critical theory), an organizer for the Wikipedia campaign Art+Feminism, and faculty for the Critical Craft Studies MA program at Warren Wilson College. She serves as a trustee for the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
