Calling All Denizens

OOF Books Presents: A Book Release with Kimi Hanauer

MOCA Store

OOF Books is pleased to present a potluck celebrating the release of Calling All Denizens, an artist book published by the Women's Studio Workshop that compiles materials from the ongoing project by Kimi Hanauer. Calling All Denizens is a participatory research project that facilitates conversations, workshops, and programs that aim to cooperatively imagine the new political practice of denizenship as an alternative to the notion of citizenship. “Denizen,” derived from Latin deintus, literally means “from within.” Building on this historical meaning, Calling All Denizens partners with individuals and organizations to explore the notions of “from within” and “from without” as they pertain to the nuances of citizenship, sovereignty, migration, exile, and diasporas. Calling All Denizens aims to give rise to a more compassionate, ethical, and genuine vision of a society that holds its denizens dear. This event is free and open to the public; feel free to bring a snack.

Kimi Hanauer is an artist, cultural organizer, and founder of Press Press, an interdisciplinary publishing initiative that aims to shift and deepen the understanding of voices, identities, and narratives that have been suppressed or misrepresented by the mainstream.
