Secret School Comes To Philly

This looks pretty damn good. I went to the first Secret School & left feeling impressed & inspired. If you're in Philly you should definitely check this out.

Secret School invites you to a collaborative event with Lin + Lam to examine the geopolitical implications of statelessness. Reflecting on tightened US immigration policy and the closing of Guantanamo Bay in the next year, Lin + Lam explore the inability or refusal to claim belonging to a recognized state. Lin + Lam will lead a discussion arising from their recent projects “Even the Trees Would Leave” and “This Is Not Me.”

Secret School will respond to the issues raised through Lin + Lam’s projects, and the concurrent exhibit at Basekamp: An Atlas, an examination of radical cartography organized by artists Lize Mogel and Alexis Bhagat.
