I am excited to be curating an evening of food and programming at Flux Factory on July 14.
Our July Flux Thursday potluck will be a play on the American Independence Day BBQ.
This is a reverse July 4th party. We will be celebrating collaboration, cooperation, cross-pollination, relation & alliance building, and the recognition of the impossibility of autonomy. We will be talking about interdependence, not only in terms of societal systems & structures, but also the interdependent relationship of art & politics with the following queries:
How do art & politics feed one another?
Why do people have the urge to separate them? Is there any benefit to separating them?
How do you negotiate their relationship in your life & practice?
