Sarrita Hunn, managing editor
Sarrita Hunn is interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes writing, arts administration, teaching and curating. Her most recent project, Institute for Autonomous Practices, is a speculative organization whose primary function (like all institutions) is to perpetuate itself by focusing on two self-defining questions: What is an institution? and What is autonomy? Over the last decade, she has worked with many artist-run spaces and projects across the globe from Andrea Zittel’s A-Z West in Joshua Tree, CA to Spor Klübü in Berlin, Germany. Additionally, she is the Residency Program Director at The Luminary and Assistant Director of the Summer Institute for Visual Arts at Drury University.
