2013 Peer Learning: a semester of self-directed learning at MoMA Peer Learning Groups was a self-directed learning program that connected individuals to each other and provided access to MoMA's resources after Museum hours. From February through May, three peer-to-peer learning groups were created and organized based on mutual interests. Through an application process, individuals selected a topic of focus (process, authorship, or economies) and provided supplemental information for other interested applicants. All submissions were reviewed anonymously by other applicants to create clusters of mutual interest.

2013 Learning from Mistakes in Socially Engaged Art From experimental restaurants to performative lectures, from social networks to public protests, artistic practices that focus on group work are gaining visibility. Whether contemporary enthusiasm for social practices comes from a desire for deep interaction in synchronous time, or from austerity measures and the poverty of the welfare state, these social practice must be addressed. This was a lecture series that asks artists, educators, and curators to speak openly about mistakes and possibilities in collaboration, documentation, narration, and commitment. Speakers: Huong Ngo, Natasha Marie Llorens, Mimi McGurl, denisse andrade, Kerry Downey, Laurel Ptak, Christopher Robbins, Eve Tuck, Larissa Harris Moderator: Caroline Woolard
