The Public School NY

Since fall of 2010, I am one of the committee member of TPSNY, an artist collective performing platform for pedagogy. I participate and facilitated classes such as ‘Performing Participation’, ‘Introduction to Sound Art’, ‘New French Theory- Introduction to Possible Future’, and ‘Anti-State Communism Reading Group’ and ‘Urban Foraging Reading Group’.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL is a school with no curriculum. At the moment, it operates as follows: first, classes are proposed by the public (I want to learn this or I want to teach this); then, people have the opportunity to sign up for the classes (I also want to learn that); finally, when enough people have expressed interest, the school finds a teacher and offers the class to those who signed up.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL project was initiated in New York by common room and Telic Arts Exchange as The Public School (for Architecture) and operated with support from the Van Alen Institute between September and December 2009.

In January 2010 THE PUBLIC SCHOOL continued as THE PUBLIC SCHOOL NEW YORK based at 177 Livingston Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Beginning November 1, 2010, THE PUBLIC SCHOOL NEW YORK will meet at itinerant locations throughout the five boroughs. Consult individual course listings for locations.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL is a self-organizing educational program for which the curriculum is proposed by the general public. The development of course topics and class participation is open to students and instructors from any field of study.
