theartassignment:

In which we meet Brooklyn-based artist Nina Katchadourian in Lawrence, Kansas, at the former home of American writer William S. Burroughs (1914 - 1997). Nina takes us on her journey of sorting Burroughs’s book collection and challenges you to sort some books yourself! 

Episode 13 Instructions:

1. Choose a person you know or would like to know better

2. Take a look at/through their library

3. Make 3 stacks of books to develop a portrait of the person

4. Upload it to your social media platform of choice using #theartassignment

5. Fame and glory (your work might be featured in a future episode)

And don’t forget to check out the rest of Nina’s Kansas Cut-Up series. They’re all great, and we only showed you a few. 

Special thanks to The Lawrence Art Center, William Burroughs Communications, Yuri Zupancic, and Tom King, for the assistance in making Nina’s project and this episode happen.

THIS IS SUCH A COOL IDEA (but I know pretty much only students locally at the moment, and they don’t bring their libraries with them!)

but have you considered:

  • strong females who don’t denounce femininity or being girly
  • strong females who are “like every other girl” bc why the hell not girls are rad
  • strong females who tear down the culture of girls hating on other girls
  • strong females who are proud to be feminists
  • strong females who support and acknowledge trans women
  • strong females who understand that being strong isn’t synonymous with manly or with “acting like a man”
