This major new publication, “Disobedience: The University as a Site of Political Potential”, on the work of Australian artist Emily Floyd, has been produced on the occasion of her public sculpture commission at Monash University, “This Place Will Always Be Open” (4 October 2012 – April 2013, Ian Potter Sculpture Court, Caulfield campus).
As the inaugural annual sculpture commission in the Ian Potter Sculpture Court, “Emily Floyd: This Place Will Always Be Open” explores the role and legacy of the university campus – and museum – as a site of political potential. Drawing its title and conceptual framework from the experimental student struggles at Monash University during the 1960s and ’70s, and incorporating a series of activities, events, debates, workshops and publications, Floyd’s work serves as a space for social encounter – reinvoking a utopian spirit that is open, inclusive, free, provisional and generative.
Publication Texts: Charlotte Day, Foreword; Ken Mansell, ‘The yeast is red: A history of the bakery, off-campus centre of the Monash Labor Club 1968-1971’
