Director Frederic King recently released a mini documentary about the artist and activist Swoon, whose many endeavors include installations, elaborate wheatpaste posters and community art projects. Featuring an in-depth interview with Swoon, the short film provides insight about how she transitioned from gallery art to creating artworks that engage with different communities on creative and practical levels. The film spotlights her ongoing Konbit Shelter project, where she and a group of artists and community members in Haiti build earthquake-safe and sustainable houses and community centers using unconventional and visually engaging architecture techniques. Take a look at some photos of the project and watch the video below.
