Beyond the Instance of an Ending

As art editors of the journal Rethinking Marxism, Susan Jahoda and Jesal Kapadia have put together Beyond the Instance of an Ending–a group exhibition that envisions education as a social movement, as theorized by Antonio Gramsci, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. The artists in the exhibition offer alternative approaches to discourse and the re-structuring of affect. Their works engage a politics of becoming; a process of rereading, recombining and revisioning–what are the potentialities of these engagements?

Participating Artists:
Eric Anglès & John Martin Widger, Sarah Beddington, Alexis Bhagat, Robert Blake, Pradeep Dalal, Yevgeniy Fiks, Benj Gerdes & Jennifer Hayashida, Susan Jahoda, Jesal Kapadia, Young Min Moon, Sreshta Rit Premnath, Harout Simonian, and Claudia Sohrens.
