Editor’s Note: With the help of local residents, Thomas Hirschhorn built a public artwork called the Gramsci Monument in the Forest Houses in the Bronx this past summer. From July 1 to September 15, the monument brought a theater, a radio station, lectures, art and computer rooms, and more to the public housing complex. Hyperallergic contributor Arianne Wack visited just before it came down to talk to residents about their experiences with the project.
As arts communities around the world experience a time of challenge and change, accessible, independent reporting on these developments is more important than ever.
