Learning about Tania Brugueras’ “Useful Art” concept from Claire Bishops’ book Artificial Hells (2012). “Useful Art” feels fitting to Trans-Horse activities (even better than “Maintenance Art”).

The text is filled with useful quotes such as: “Critical pedagogy retains authority, but not authoritarianism”.
