Prometheus Bound

From Rhizome Artbase

Tim Rollins and K.O.S. (Kids of Survival) have worked together collaboratively since the early 1980s when Rollins, a special ed teacher assigned to public school 52 in the South Bronx, established the Art and Knowledge workshop for students with learning disabilities. Out of this grew a collective art practice based on texts which the group studied together. For [Dia’s Artists’ Web Projects], they take Aeschylus's Prometheus Bound as their point of departure. Each member of K.O.S. has created animations to indicate points of navigation throughout the site. —Lynne Cooke

Tim Rollins and K.O.S. (Kids of Survival), have created a series of "dialogues" which weave together excerpts from Aeschylus' play, studio discussions, and outside commentary. The outcome is pages or "scrolls" which are works of art that, as with all of their work, has been produced collectively.
