Growing Dialogue: No Longer Interested | a blade of grass | art.media.activism.media.art | Scoop.it

"One interesting thing that happens is artists start working directly with power instead of working within a rather rigid power structure that they are free to critique. This is a radical shift. Instead of depending on a supportive context in which anything is possible, artists are influencing lawmakers; having difficult conversations about capitalism with thousands of people; building self-sustaining ecosystems; transcribing memories into a history of a country."

“One of the most important things the occupation has succeeded in doing,” Nabil Al-Ra’ee says, “is to kill hope, to shut down the mind, and to kill the imagination. You can’t dream. You have a limit.” As a first exercise, students are instructed to seriously consider what they want for themselves and their lives. “It’s very difficult when you ask someone what is your dream and he says I want to die,” Nabil muses.

Guerrilla Protestors Storm the Guggenheim With a Message the Museum Can’t Ignore

Guerrilla Protestors Storm the Guggenheim With a Message the Museum Can’t Ignore | art.media.activism.media.art | Scoop.it
The Guggenheim didn't see this one coming.
Xana Libanio's insight:

"The protest took place during the museum's "pay what you will" hours, and was the most recent in a series of such actions at the Guggenheim led by Gulf Labor, a coalition of artists, students and academics who work to "safeguard migrant workers' rights."

Mobilizing for the common: some lessons from Italy | ROAR Magazine | art.media.activism.media.art | Scoop.it
Saturday’s protest in Rome was the latest in a series of actions around a common project. What can organizers elsewhere learn from Italy’s movements?
Xana Libanio's insight:

This Saturday, tens of thousands marched on Rome to restate their call for housing, income and dignity for all. If there's something we can learn from the grassroots processes currently underway in Italy, it's the importance and possibility of mobilizing broad coalitions behind a shared vision and a common project.

Economic Prosperity and Economic Democracy: The Worker Co-Op Solution

Economic Prosperity and Economic Democracy: The Worker Co-Op Solution | art.media.activism.media.art | Scoop.it
Workers' self-directed enterprises (WSDEs) are a response to capitalism's failure to deliver economic prosperity and socialisms' failure to deliver economic democracy.
Xana Libanio's insight:

Transforming capitalist enterprises into WSDEs in this context would radically change workplaces, residential communities, and hence, the daily life of virtually everyone. It could realize the systemic change that traditional socialisms pointed toward but never achieved: a viable and attractive alternative preferable to capitalism.

Banners and the 2011 Madrid Protest Camp: Reading the Signs of Revolt | V&A | art.media.activism.media.art | Scoop.it

Between May 15 and June 12, the square became a site of collective creativity. One of the main activities involved the continuous production of self-made banners and placards. Exhibited in the square, they contributed to the reclaiming and re-symbolising of the space. Although banner-making took place all around the square, a Graphic and Visual Arts Committee worked systematically to create banners and other symbolic elements for display.

The Commons as a Rising Alternative to State and Market

The Commons as a Rising Alternative to State and Market | art.media.activism.media.art | Scoop.it
The commons is not just an Internet phenomenon or a matter of economics. The commons lies at the heart of a major cultural and social shift now underway....
Xana Libanio's insight:

"Fortunately, the Internet and indigenous peoples, the re-localization movement and hackers, community foresters and fishing cooperatives, and many, many others, are showing that the commons can be an effective vehicle for social and political emancipation. Jeremy Rifkin's astute analysis of this powerful trend will help open up a much-needed discussion in the stodgy precincts of conventional economics."

Xana Libanio's insight:

"When we speak about socially engaged art (SEA), the problem with value can be summarized in two questions: If I make an aesthetically compelling work that is ineffective as a social experience, is it still valuable? And alternatively, if I create a social experience that is only called art in a nominal way, why should it have any currency in the art system?"
