RYH is really proud to be a part of the Anarchitectural Library exhibit which is part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial! From Toronto based artists Adrian Blackwell and Christopher Mendoza:
We would like to invite your organization to participate in this small reference library within the Chicago Cultural Center, which will document activism against the neoliberal erasure of Chicago’s common spaces: its housing, schools, manufacturing districts, and metabolic circuits—clean air, water, food security and park spaces—as well as spaces which are literally removing people from city spaces—such as prisons, police stations and immigrant detention centers. We are asking organizations like yours, who are actively resisting these erasures, to submit print materials you have made, as well as a short list of books or other resources that are useful to your understanding of the issues you organize around, which we could then acquire for the library and donate back to you at the end of the exhibition. Specifically, we would really appreciate your contribution to the section on the erasure of schools.
