The Fourth Demand: Final Exhibition, 2016
Universities are sites for pedagogies that both reproduce hierarchies of power while challenging the predominant hegemony. In 1969, Black and Puerto Rican students took over the New York City College Campus to demand open admissions. With their “fourth demand”, these students sought to include the voices of marginalized peoples into the classroom.
This exhibition demands the opening up of the private space of New York University to the public, pushing the students, faculty and administration to engage in political and economic action which shifts NYU’s relationship with the public.
