EMPAC—The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center

The bell rings; a teacher instructs the audience to take out their textbooks. The class begins. The “Young-Girlization” of the world is the topic of the class, which gradually breaks with codes and regulations of teaching and learning. The custom-made textbook is inspired by Raw Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl by the Tiqqun collective.

Sound poetry, lessons from a one-of-a-kind ballet instructor, songs, sculptures, and music by a string quartet combine to form this multifaceted and symbolic portrait of the Young-Girl created by Quebec-based Bureau de l’APA and collaborators from diverse artistic domains.

Curator: Ash Bulayev
