At a time when we are thinking about the rights of the most vulnerable, Martin Guggenheim—one of the nation’s foremost experts on children’s rights and family law—will talk about the current state of children’s rights in the United States.
The 1960s cultivated important cultural changes, including the relatively little-known start of the modern children’s rights movement. It began with a series of Supreme Court cases that unleashed a new breed of children’s rights advocates: lawyers. But what these lawyers actually accomplished for children is highly contestable. Many things turned worse for children, particularly children of color, over the past generation. Today, the United States is the world leader in imprisoning children; in sending children into foster care; and even in expelling children from public school, which has notoriously been linked to the school-to-prison pipeline and the rise of mass incarceration.
On 23 September 2016, the Jury for the curatorial project of the exhibition in the Polish Pavilion at the 57th International Art Exhibition in Venice 2017, having reviewed 43 qualified entries, selected the winning project: Little Review by Sharon Lockhart, curated by Barbara Piwowarska.
The project was inspired by the history of Mały Przegląd (Little Review) (1926–1939), a supplement, written by and aimed at children and young people, of the Nasz Przegląd (Our Review) daily newspaper. The original idea of Little Review came from Janusz Korczak, a Polish-Jewish educator, children’s author, and pediatrician who spent many years working as director of an orphanage in Warsaw before being sent to the Treblinka extermination camp in 1942.
Sharon Lockhart’s project deals with adolescence and the end of childhood, giving a voice to young women, teenagers that are entering adulthood. This film features past and present female students of the youth sociotherapy centers in Poland and a photographic series presenting the history of Little Review, as well as translating selected issues of the periodical. Sharon Lockhart has been active on the Polish art scene for nearly 10 years now.
