Through art performances, readings, and discussions that generate understanding of civic texts as end-user license agreements, EULA League confronts feelings of civic powerlessness with the hope of subverting them.
As a part of a larger Conceptual art practice by local artist and educator Allison Bolah, EULA League (as in an end-user license agreement) considers the aesthetics of language in terms of content, intent, form and format, and impact. Through performances, readings, and discussions that generate understanding of civic texts as end-user license agreements – and by embarking on self-directed civic engagement projects in light of those understandings –, EULA League @ Broward County Library confronts feelings of civic powerlessness with the hope of subverting them.
