How to Unmake an American Quilt

With Katie Hargrave

The act of undoing as an ethical choice... 

In a goal-oriented world, can we open a space for creative political dialog by removing progress, by acting in reverse? How to un-make an American Quilt acts as a pair of scissors re-imagined toward uncertain outcomes. 

We question ideas of labor, gender roles, and historical nostalgia by skilling without an emphasis on result. Rather, this is skilling for the sake of skill with an eye to collectivity and conversation. As a questioning, we work toward building a collective understanding of communal labor, and we see the work as an opportunity, through deconstruction, to contemplate alternatives to material use, gender roles, and labor activities.
