Focus on a thing you see in one of the works. Write a history of this thing: where was it before it arrived in this gallery? Who besides the artist has had contact with it?
Carolee Schneemann’s Kinetic Painting book from Christina Freeman’s Ultraviolet Archive. This book is on loan from the Queens Library because its content has been challenged or censored in some way—how?
Who had checked it out before? It’s from the Jamaica Branch on Merrick Boulevard.
It looks barely used at all.
What would Carolee think?
A sign near the book says a formal complaint may have been made.
I would like to formally commend Carolee.
