#BiographyOfComplaint
#BIOGRAPHY of COMPLAINT a live-art and online meme project that surveys the performatory nature of civil rights laws. This life as art project is inspired by the writings of Sara Ahmed and the artist’s experience of academic gaslighting, after he reported a hostile work environment in graduate school. In the durational performance of #BIOGRAPY of COMPLAINT Leopoldo Bloom assists New Yorkers with filling out civil rights complaint forms. Acting as a scribe, Bloom translates participation’s oral histories into legal jargon, validating their stories into a codified complaint template. #myEDUCATIONinReverse
