AND AND AND / Event 11 / Taisha Paggett and Ashley Hunt / Safety Words / Houston / June 27 – 30, 2011

AND AND AND is an artist run initiative, which will use the time between now and dOCUMENTA (13) in 2012 to consider with individuals and groups across the world the role art and culture can play today and the constituent publics or communities which could be addressed. The series of interventions, situations, and occurrences entitled AND AND AND are part of dOCUMENTA (13) and will compose a map of emergent positions, concerns, and possible points of solidarity.

Land use. Property. A border: Where two opposing desires meet. They push into one another — the uniform planning of one community pressed against the radical diversity of everything else.

For the eleventh AND AND AND event, Taisha Paggett and Ashley Hunt brought their collaborative project, “ON MOVEMENT, THOUGHT AND POLITICS,” to the Third Ward community of Houston and the residents of Project Row Houses. They initiated a workshop designed to arrive at creative solutions to theft, following incidents that had recently increased in the area. Their project was originally developed for raising questions of power and agency within different social settings by applying the resources of their respective creative practices — dance, visual art, teaching, community organizing and activism. In this case, they set out to lead a workshop that draws upon concepts and strategies of the global anti-prison movement, which questions prisons and policing as reasonable methods for dealing with harm and violence.
