A METHOD OF [A CLOAK]
Aug 1-14, 2012
A moment of delay or focus in order to dialogue the gap between our more or less 'private' writing and the public world. Via Charles Bernstein's notion of an applied poetic, implying a 'use' value whereby our aesthetics might engage discourses of (more or different) authority, taking a series of provisional positions of social or political consequence within or around or beside an aesthetic practice that interfolds an ethics. "School" because looking to minimally institutionalize a place for such dialogue, thinking learning as an far-inward-outward modulation of attention and listening.
Operations partially funded by the junior fellows prize from the Kelly Writers House.
