Politics In Public Space In Words And Pictures

Politics In Public Space In Words And Pictures
the comics of Seth Tobocman
with discussion by AK Thompson
music by Eric Blitz, Jenny Gonzalez Blitz, Andy Laties & Rebecca Migdal
Tuesday, December 13, 7pm

Artist, author and teacher Seth Tobocman shares lessons we can learn from the past for our current moment, by drawing on two of his recent publications. LEN (a lawyer in history) provides us with historic perspectives on occupation from the case of the Chicago 7, and the newly re-issued War in the Neighborhood gives insight into gentrification and displacement from the viewpoint of the 1980s Lower East Side.

Finally Got The News: The Printed Legacy of the U.S. Radical Left, 1970-1979

Exhibition and event series, January 26 – May 14, 2017

Finally Got the News uncovers the hidden legacy of the radical left of the 1970s, a decade when vibrant social movements challenged racism, imperialism, patriarchy and capitalism itself. It uses original printed materials—from pamphlets to posters, flyers to record albums—to tell this politically rich and little-known story.

Film screening: Joanie4Jackie4Ever

November 4, 7pm and November 5, 7pm

Interference Archive, as part of the exhibition We Are What We Archive, presents Joanie4Jackie4Ever, two nights of screenings and discussions focussed on the Joanie4Jackie project. Joanie4Jackie is a low-fi VHS distribution project of short work by women. Born out of the 1990s cultural movement of Riot Grrrl conventions, punk music, and cheap fanzine production, Joanie4Jackie was developed before the internet and before peer-to-peer file exchange.
