Knowledgeable

Scroll to the right

Knowledgeable parodies institutional testing's efforts to calibrate human potential. Mimicking the style of the tests we've been so well trained to take- SATs, IQ, GMATs etc. - Knowledgeable is divided into four sections: language, reading, math, and writing. But rather than the usual questions which coerce a multiple choice answer, the questions here put the test taker in impossible and absurd situations: choose the best way to beat a woman, translate a dozen languages, tell us what you desire. Knowledgeable's questions question the very possibility of standardized testing; here the questions are loaded with emphatic perspective: feminist, non-Eurocentric, non-homophobic, as well as with humor, wit and the joy of putting on the world. letterpress, linoleum cuts, coptic stitch 9" x 13" (open) 1995
