Can knee-jerk nationalism be swapped for a wild love of the local or is patriotism always collusion with Empire? Mary Walling Blackburn and Anhoek School present Radical Citizenship: The Tutorials, a series of one-on-one tutorials for participants with artists, activists, ecologists, and academics from various disciplines. Over the course of four days, at Southern Exposure and Angel Island, tutors will engage participants in individualized inquiries into the nature of citizenship and its enactment. Each tutor will offer their own lyrical and practical examples and investigations of radical citizenship and, as such, an unregulated form of belonging. Together both the tutor and the participant will deconstruct the terms of what it means to be a citizen, upset its definition as based on a principle of exclusion, and redefine it as practice rather than status. The length of each tutorial will be negotiated on site between each participant and tutor, ranging from 5 minutes to an hour.

In addition to the tutorials occurring in the gallery, selected materials and documentation from the tutorials on Governor's Island in New York City is on display, including those by Caroline Woolard, Judd Morrissey, Mark Jeffery, Natasha Marie Llorens, Regine Basha, Slought Foundation and Sofia Gallisa Muriente amongst others.
