About Can we Rule it Out?
Can we Rule it Out? brings together a collection of texts, reflections, questions, documents, inviting readers, colleagues, and peer organizations to engage in difficult, often fraught, discussions about sexual abuse in art spaces. "We do not want these conversations to always start at zero, as if a lot of work around sexual abuse hasn’t been done already. There is copious activism, scholarship, and creativity on this topic, if one wants to find it. What this publication would like to do is contribute to the work that has already been done and to be a waypost toward what remains to be done."
