The Anhoek School

The Anhoek School- Experimental Auxiliary Education for Women

– Temporary Campus (Brooklyn, New York City)

The Anhoek School is an educational experiment.  It investigates alternatives to traditional American education at a moment in time when many experimental schools have closed (Black Mountain School and Antioch College) or ceased to develop inventive and/or radical methodologies.  

In short, The Anhoek School is an experimental all-women’s graduate school located in Brooklyn, New York.  The curriculum is based on cultural production (political, aesthetic, and theoretical).  Classes are small (5 to 7 people). Tuition costs are mediated by a barter system; that is students labor for the school in exchange for classes.

    Mary, this is Isaac, I think i met you, (or someone that works here?) The mission statement/statement of purpose/bio looks good. exciting. I have lots of opinions on school. 🙂 I’ll read more about it tomorrow, and write a follow up. it’s late now. I got my shelving home safely, but our talk about bed bugs has my skin crawling.
    thanks for the link!
