An article on the work of Rhona Byrne and Elaine Leader.
In: Jennie Guy (ed.), Curriculum, Bristol (UK): Intellect, 2020
"Curriculum surveys a broad range of practices that share an interest in how the conventions of learning, as typically encountered in schools, might be extended or reimagined. At the heart of Curriculum is Art School, an independent curatorial framework founded by Jennie Guy in 2014. Operating throughout Ireland, Art School establishes interfaces between contemporary art and schools as sites of education, inviting students and artists to work collaboratively. It takes place as a series of workshops, residencies, exhibitions and new writing that explore how contemporary artists can intervene within systems of education in order to inspire and expand, fracture and revise."

The School's Embrace
The School's Embrace is a short essay written as part of the workshop This Book Is a Classroom, which took place on 24 March 2013 in Rotterdam. The workshop coincided with the presentation of the book We would like to learn and are working on a book by Lucie Kolb and Romy Rüegger. In the workshop, a group of selected artists, writers and theoreticians were invited to respond to one of the articles in the book. My contribution was a response to a text by literary scholar Irina Dumitrescu.
