Re: [Nettime-ro] INFO despre KOKEM

Afterall are delighted to invite you to the
launch of Art and Social Change, a critical
reader edited by Will Bradley and Charles Esche.
The reader gathers together an international
selection of artists' proposals, manifestos,
theoretical texts and public declarations that
focus on the question of political engagement and
the possibility of social change. The approaches
represented are many and diverse, from Gustave
Courbet's involvement in the Paris Commune and
the socialist art theory of William Morris to the
hybrid activist practice associated with the
twenty-first century 'movement of movements';
from the political commitments of the Modernist
avant-gardes to the rejections of Modernism in
favour of protest, critique, utopian social
experiment or revolutionary propaganda. Six
specially commissioned essays – by Geeta Kapur,
Lucy Lippard, John Milner, Gerald Raunig, Marina
Vishmidt and Tirdad Zolghadr – further explore
both the historical context and the contemporary

During the launch we will be screening Nils
Vest's Five Days for Peace (1978), a film about
an intervention by the Danish street theatre
collective Solvognen during the 1973 NATO summit
in Copenhagen.

Art and Social Change is published by Tate
Publishing in association with Afterall and is
available online from
Publishing and in selected bookstores in Europe
and the US.
