Learning by Doing at the Farm: Craft, Science & Counterculture in Modern California Ed. by Robert J. Kett and Anna Kryczka
Regular price $20.00
Beginning in 1968, the University of California, Irvine, was host to an experiment in intercultural exchange and artistic and social scientific learning through practice: the Farm was a space for craftspeople from Guatemala, Mexico, and Samoa to demonstrate their skills; a laboratory for new methods in education and research. Learning by Doing at the Farm reflects upon this unusual experiment, which brought together Cold War politics, modern development, and indigenous peoples drawn into the strange intellectual and cultural circumstances of 1960s California.

Soberscove Press is an an independent press that publishes books about art and culture. Soberscove was founded by Julia Klein in 2009 with a focus on making art historical materials accessible to a non-specialist audience; this concern continues in the books we publish today. Soberscove books tend to explore modes and functions of documentation, process, and connect historical themes and issues to the present. We also produce books in collaboration with artists.
