Public (Re) Assembly

Author of Social Works: Performing Art, Supporting Publics (Routledge, 2011), Shannon Jackson speaks about what it means to assemble in public in our present moment — and to assemble public sector systems. Is there a relation between the public appearance of the former and the systematic operations of the latter? Assembly recalls theories of democracy and freedom as well as modern and contemporary art movements of assemblage. It also invokes industrial (and post-industrial) processes of production, arrangement, service, and labor. Can the re-imagining of Public Re-Assembly help us to re-imagine how social practice is performed?

Shannon Jackson is a professor and researcher focusing on collaborations across art forms and the role of the arts in social change. In addition to several faculty appointments at UC-Berkeley, she is also Associate Vice Chancellor for the Arts + Design.
