How Do You Throw a Brick Through the Window…

Friday, May 3 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


“How do you throw a brick through the window…” is a research initiative comprised of this symposium presented on Zoom, artist-led workshops, and exhibitions, co-organized by Tufts University Art Galleries with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center taking place from 2024–2026. The research initiative invites artists to engage the radical questioning of writer, artist, astrologer, and disabled non-binary Korean-American activist Johanna Hedva: “How do you throw a brick through the window of a bank if you can’t get out of bed?” Written in the aftermath of the 2014 Black Lives Matter protests, and now rethinking Hedva’s text in the wake of 2020 protests for racial equity and COVID-19 pandemic, this long-term research project considers the troubling of public streets as de-facto sites for civic action and able-bodied action as the measure of protest. Instead, participating artists offer research on various forms of embodied dissent informed by disabled, crippled, sick, mad, and healing frameworks and methodologies in past, current, and future projects. Register through Eventbrite.
