This project has been ongoing since 2010, and has spread to branches around the world. I wish we had a branch here in Las Vegas. I am going to try to open one. Anyone want to be involved?
How is this art? To me, it is an extraordinarily relevant contemporary form: collaborative, engaged with the politics and economics of globalization, responding to the economic realities of the art world (many artists, sparse economic opportunity), breaks down distinctions between "art" and "life" by employing everyday skills to build a Utopian community...and on.
