Stealing Horses: the Invention of Possession
The Anhoek School is a pedagogical experiment offering graduate level courses for women in cultural production (aesthetic, political and critical). It aims to forge an institution that takes generative risks and doesn't ruin our desire to learn together. As it stands, tuition is based on barter and readings are often down loadable PDFs. By June, the school will have concluded two workshops and will begin the first class in Marfa, Texas. In Marfa, students will spend the mornings gardening and their afternoons in class. Food from the garden will be prepared for a shared lunch before the afternoon meeting or field trip. The work in the garden will be guided by Farmstand Marfa's Sandra Harper and will serve as their tuition barter. More detailed descriptions of the mission, name and coursework are available at www.anhoekschool.org.
