Socialist cultural production?
If we acknowledge the need for an independent form like the Communist Gallery how do we continue? To create a space of discourse requires that we periodically are able to occupy space.
Suggestions so far include:-
- We make the mobile gallery t.v booth more more mobile, something which could be taken around and parked with or without permission at events would be good. Wheels and a fold up model which could be taken on the tube are required.
- This mobile form could include space for literature.
- A space for people to work in a pull out tent like shelter.
Not only that, the discourse that develops needs to be linked to previous knowledge so that we are forming something outside of the normal bourgeois art space or university symposium and more importantly it continues to alienate its method of production from these, for the reason that it is important to have a body of knowledge formed through the medium of art that is not compromised by the hidden agenda of reproduction in either gallery or academic settings.
For this reason the website , probably the magazine page needs to be better coordinated.
Any suggestions and thoughts?
I include a video here sent to me by John Cussans, of particular interests is what he says about the Sophist short circuit, how do we move beyond this?
