The Power Plant

Taking cues from the archival images and content as seen in the exhibition The Unfinished Conversation: Encoding/Decoding, participants in this workshop will use their imaginations to invent a false historical event. Participants will then create a mini archive historicizing this event, complete with found photos, forged documents, manufactured manuscripts, unauthenticated drawings and other material records. Issues surrounding historical memory, the construction of the past and the importance of the archive will be discussed. Participants will take their projects home at the end of the workshop.

Tours and workshops are led by artist-educator Anna Bouzina, assisted by Adrienne Costantino.

Please note: For children ages 8 – 12 and their younger siblings and adult companions. Caregivers are expected to join their children in all activities.
