ROLLINS, Tim with 15 South Bronx Kids. Ignorance is Strength.

(Bronx, NY): No printing details, 1982 / 83.  First edition.  A4 stapled sheets.  In August 1981, Tim Rollins, then twenty-six years old, was recruited by George Gallego, principal of Intermediate School 52 in the South Bronx, to develop a curriculum that incorporated art-making with reading and writing lessons for students who had been classified as academically or emotionally “at risk.” Together, Rollins and his students developed a collaborative strategy that combined lessons in reading and writing with the production of works of art. In a process they call “jammin,” Rollins or one of the students reads aloud from the selected text while the other members draw and relate the stories to their own experiences.   This publication follows Rollin’s reading of George Orwell’s 1984 text and comprises a first sheet in which Rollins explains ‘the method’ followed by 15 pages of reproductions of the students reactions to the reading of the text.   A good copy only with the cover sheet present but free from staples.
