#SEARCHUNDEROCCUPY: Call For Entries (Beginning March 15th)

To complement the #SEARCHUNDEROCCUPY exhibit featured at the Aronson Gallery from March 1 to April 1, 2012, The New School is launching an online living archive of creative and critical responses to the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, contributed regularly by members of the university’s community.

This living archive seeks to extend the conversation around OWS beyond the physical exhibit in time and space and draw in the larger audience touched by the Occupy movement. The online archive is a platform to provide context for The New School’s interactions with this movement — past, present and future — and we hope that it will remain a critical public resource.

The selection committee encourages submissions that may include (but are not limited to) mediums such as: photography, video, sculpture, installation, performance, interactive and written work.
