Organized by Irina Contreras
This is a creative research based group that will meet fully welcoming all of our life distractions as possible. That’s right: the business of our lives are welcome material for us to work with. How do we create sustainable “radical” realities while living under late capitalism? The group will focus on the creation of a multigenre Bibliography as well as individual research support brought together in experimental forms documenting and centering community building/systematic collapse. We will approach the systems piece of this work while deciding collectively what might be focused on. Guest speakers and facilitators included.
The purpose of the assembly is to document and create research looking at collectives and cooperatives in LA as well as exploring the places that feel “impossible.” Where might we find some assemblance of interdependence via the ways in which we feel tethered and constricted by our current life systems?
