For the outdoor screening we’ve arranged at the Munka Folk High School, we’ll present We Have No Art, a film about Sister Corita made by Baylis Glascock in 1967. The film covers the teaching methods and ideas of artist-teacher Sister Corita Kent at the Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles. It shows classroom conversations about art and teaching, and includes a scene with the students going on a field trip to a local car wash. We see Sister Corita explain to a full auditorium what a Happening is. The film also covers her list of Ten rules for students, teachers and life, otherwise commonly attributed to John Cage.

Sister Corita
Corita Kent (1918-1986) became known for her silkscreen prints during the 1960s and 1970s. She was an innovative and unusual pop artist whilst living and practising as a Catholic nun in California. As a Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College until 1968 when she left the Order to work on her art.
