In association with Rethinking Marxism & New Marxian Times, 7th International Conference

As art editors of the journal Rethinking Marxism, Susan Jahoda and Jesal Kapadia have brought together two projects: Martha Rosler Library and Beyond the Instance of an Ending.  Envisioning education as a social movement, as theorized by Antonio Gramsci, W.E.B Du Bois, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, these exhibitions provide a context for dialogue, one that imagines a new readership.
