A Quiet Game of Disobedience, 2018, New Student Precinct, Melbourne University

A Project coordinated by Anita Spooner for the New Student Precinct at Melbourne University (Grattan Street) was a 2 hour workshop that culminated in a small scale intervention at the New Student Precinct with student and staff participants.


Do you want to question regular behaviour in public spaces at the New Student Precinct? Kym Maxwell wants to too, enticing you to explore Alan Kaprow’s 60’s art theory ‘How to Make a Happening’. We will deliberately intervene in space in unexpected ways as if in a quiet game of disobedience. This two-hour workshop will alter your perceptions of public space and its norms with instructional processes and inventions that are fun and playful. An experience for the sake of fun, exchange and to contradict the ordinary.
