Every two weeks throughout the summer, MIT List Visual Art Center has released a new artist-led experience. Each program consisted of an audio file, and a PDF text. You are welcome to choose either to engage with—they have often be the same content, and were designed to offer different but comparable entry points, depending on whether you prefer to read or listen as you begin your experience or walk. An audio transcript can also be found below, and the PDF is screen-reader enabled.
For this final edition of This Way, Xaviera Simmons prompts participants to picture and deconstruct their ideas of property. She asks participants to imagine themselves as property owners while probing us to reevaluate desires for ownership and attachments.
