Join us for an engaging artist talk with Brooklyn Public Library’s 2022 Katowitz Radin Artist-in-Residence, Marisa Morán Jahn, as she immerses us in her broad and socially-minded artistic practice, with projects ranging from Carehaus, the U.S.’ first intergenerational care-based co-housing project, to Bibliobandido (the Story Eater), an initiative she has enlivened at library branches this summer across the borough.

Jahn is welcomed by guest curator Amy Rosenblum-Martín. Following her presentation, she will be in dialogue with Carmen Hermo, Associate Curator. Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

ABOUT

Marisa Morán Jahn’s art and films redistribute power, “exemplifying the possibilities of art as social practice”(ArtForum). Codesigned with youth, new immigrants, and working families, Jahn’s work has engaged millions through venues such as the Tribeca Film Festival, Obama’s White House, the United Nations, PBS, The New York Times, CNN, the BBC, Univision Global, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Venice Biennale of Architecture. Her key works include Bibliobandido, a story-eating bandit whose fame in Honduras rivals Santa Claus; two mobile studios (NannyVan, CareForce One) and a Sundance-supported PBS film amplifying the voices of caregivers; and Carehaus, the U.S.’s first care-based co-housing project designed with architect Rafi Segal. She has taught at Teachers College at Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (her alma mater),and Parsons/The New School where she is the Director of Integrated Design. In 2022, she was a Fellow at Sundance and MIT. marisajahn.com @marisa_jahn
