America/n

A CONTINUOUS 12-HOUR CONVERSATION / PRESENTATION ABOUT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION ON ELECTION DAY, 2012 was presented on Presidential Election Day, November 6th 2012, during polling hours (6:00 am to 7:00 pm) at DEFIBRILLATOR GALLERY, CHICAGO -  Lucky Pierre and 24 guest presenters worked through the American project as defined by the United States Constitution

Each presenter was invited to research, interpret, rewrite or otherwise respond to a pre-selected section of the US Constitution. Each had 20-minutes to report their “findings” in whatever form they chose (discussions / songs / performances / polemics/ lectures). The daylong event was free and open to all, creating a public space to collectively learn, worry, have fun, argue, discuss, and reflect.
