  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

Is it a Policy or a Procedure?
What's in a name? We frequently hear people use the names "policy", and “procedure” to refer to documents.We define them as follows:
Policy:  a document that outlines specific requirements or rules that must be followed. Many College policies are outlined in the Employee Handbook.
Procedure:  collections of system-specific or procedural-specific requirements, e.g, how to process a payment on a student account.
Business Office Forms are located on the Forms directory. Memos are available on our Forms, Memos and Policies page.
