Tim Rollins and K.O.S.
Darkwater (after W.E.B. DuBois)

2013

US$7,500

About

This work is inspired by W.E.B. Dubois’s autobiographical text “Dark Water.” They found a 1920 1st edition of this book, which consists of essays and short fiction about race, class and gender issues. Tim Rollins, a renowned educator, was an active member in the South Bronx education community since teaching at a public middle school in the early 1980s. In 1984, Rollins launched the Art and Knowledge Workshop in the South Bronx with a group of at-risk students who called themselves K.O.S. (Kids of Survival). Many of the original K.O.S. members are still actively involved in the collaboration today. Modeled on their pedagogy of responding to literary texts through art making, the collective has since gone on to hold workshops in classrooms nationwide and internationally, including Northern Ireland, Edinburgh, London, Milan, Bergamo, Montreal, and Basel.
