Fritz Haeg's
Sundown Schoolhouse of QUEER HOME ECONOMICS

Part of Wide Open School at the Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, London / June 11 - July 11, 2012 / open Tue to Sun 10:00 - 20:30 (after June 18 from Tue to Fri, 11:00 - 17:30 and Sat & Sun 11:00 - 19:30)

~ Contact info(at)sundownschoolhouse(dot)org with any questions about the program
~ See updates on Wikidiary and interview in BUTT
~ Are you interested in proposing an event, workshop, conversation, meeting, or activity for any open period you see in our schedule below?

The Sundown Schoolhouse of Queer Home Economics invites the local queer community to our temporary HQ for an on-going dialog about 'making ourselves at home' with casual and programmed conversing, cooking, crafting, debating, decorating, demonstrating, discussing, dishing, eating, exercising, hanging out, lecturing, moving, performing, reading, speechifying, talking, teaching, and workshopping related to LGBTQ home-making (inspired by the program of ‘home economics’ developed in the 19th century to educate young women in domestic duties). As a place to queer our ideas of home, it is based in the very queer home of an intimate geodesic dome tent installed over a seating platform and conversation pit surrounded by fruit trees on the rooftop terrace of the Hayward Gallery for their pre-Olympics Wide Open School program.

An open call and invitations to the local LGBTQ community leads to periodic daily programming, which might include skill-building workshops (cleaning, cooking, decorating, knitting, gardening, sewing, flower-arranging, baking, cooking, canning...); relationship seminars (counseling, community, family, children, couples...); and activities related to the creative, financial, legal, logistical, political, and social aspects of queer home-making. Casual drop-in activities will otherwise continue from morning to night, such as book clubs, extended craft-making sessions, movement exercises, potluck meals, and general dialog about today's domesticating queer and ways of queering the domestic.

Fritz Haeg, artist and Schoolhouse organizer, is in residence during the first week leading daily events, starting the program on June 11th with an introductory talk Out and In the Homosexual Home, and introducing the new project series Domestic Integrities. Visitors are invited to bring their old clothes, fabrics, linens, towels, etc. to contribute to the communal making of a rug for the HQ.

Brent Pilkey, PhD candidate at the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, will have a regular presence at the Schoolhouse through the month as co-curator and scholar in residence, organizing events, leading conversations, conducting research, and continuing work on his thesis Queering Heteronormativity at Home.
