The Anti-Stairs Club Lounge

Shannon Finnegan

2019. Documentation of live happening.

On a wall near Finnegan’s benches will be several signed examples of Finnegan’s Anti-Stairs Club declaration, which features several signed examples of the anti-stairs club pledge, “As long as I live I will never climb the vessel” as well as some images from the original happening.

Together, the benches and the lounge make an argument for respite as a crip political project, an opt-in ritual of resistance against museums and galleries designed without disability in mind.
