Arts Against Cuts was initiated across London Art Schools last Autumn.

 
We want to reclaim the public, critical space that universities and art schools should be, transforming those buildings into art schools for the future, bringing together art students, artists, cultural workers and those fighting the cuts from across the UK to share in defiance against the relentless marketization of our education and our lives. We will share knowledge and skills; we will collaborate across disciplines, ages and backgrounds; we will turn our imagination and desires into tools of disobedience. We will make sure that all the knowledge, ideas, tools and projects which emerge from the event will be disseminated and put into action in streets and public spaces across the country and be shared by all those in the anti-cuts movements. The Direct Weekend will be a feast of non stop workshops and presentations, slide shows and films, how-to sessions and skill shares, and a free space for spontaneous creation of events, actions and expressions. Its not important what art is but what it does, and right now it has the potential to turn the crisis of cuts into an opportunity for change.

MARXISM IN CULTURE READING GROUP – LONDON

Dear All

The Marxism in Culture reading group will resume its monthly meetings on Friday the 22nd of October 2010 at 5.30. The group meets on Friday evenings in SR5 at the UCL History of Art Department, 20-21 Gordon Square, and discusses key texts, both historical and contemporary, that have a bearing on Marxist aesthetics and radical cultural theory and practice more generally. Thus far, we have looked at texts by Marx and Engels, Lukács, Brecht, Adorno, Bensaid, Eagleton, Debord, Bakhtin and the Retort collective, to name just a few.

In our first meeting for this term we will discuss Alain Badiou’s The Communist Hypothesis.

If you are interested in participating then please contact Antigoni Memou at: antigonimemou@yahoo.co.uk

Best Wishes
Warren Carter, Maggie Gray, Antigoni Memou
