      A site-specific collaborative performance/protest effort of two artist/activist (Whitney V. Hunter and Preach R Sun). Took place on August 23, 2014 and involved two actions performed in two separate locations (NYC and Ferguson City, Mo.). The first action (#101) was performed by Whitney V. Hunter, in Union Square, NYC. Hunter’s action, a 2 hour endurance piece, involved him lying on the ground and tracing his body with chalk to create 101 chalk body outlines -- a number representing the many and more. The second action (Counting the Dead) was performed by Preach R Sun, in Ferguson City, Mo. Preach, standing at the site of Mike Brown’s memorial, counted the dead (in the fashion of 3 Little Indians). He counted off to 313.

        The following is an excerpt from "BORIS LURIE NO!art MAN," a film by Amikam Goldman. In it the filmmaker documents Dietmar Kirvis' conservation and preparation for shipping of an important body of NO!art works that were included in the 2001 exhibition "NO!art" and the Aesthetics of Doom. The film also documents the installation of the show at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and provides an invaluable historical record of a cross section of responses, as these were voiced by diverse members of the exhibition's public. Curated by Estera Milman and funded, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, "NO!art" and the Aesthetics of Doom is still counted as the collective's most comprehensive North American retrospective exhibition, to date.

          • Crucifixion of Kneeling Man [Ferguson, Performance Protest Action]

            04:46

            from THE ONE((1))MAN EXPERIENCE / Added

            Crucifixion of Kneeling Man, is the latest action in the current series (ONEMAN: Fugitivism, Black Arts and Barbarian Invasions) of the ongoing, ONEMAN: The Liberation Project. The video combines clips from other previously performed actions. However, the signature action was performed in Ferguson City (at the Ferguson Police Station) on the evening of November 29th 2014. The piece, while serving as an act of protest, is also a creative statement regarding the dispensability of black life. The kneeling man symbolizing the many that have been senselessly executed. As such black life is made analogous to that of the crucified Christ or sacrificial lamb. Whereby blackness - stigmatized, demonized and criminalized - has essentially been targeted and sanctioned for extermination. ‘Crucifixion of Kneeling Man’, also symbolizes the harnessing and or suppression of black rage; and the impotent futility of peaceful resistance in the face of calculating and assiduous aggression. It is a call to rebel, a call to rise up and fight!

                  In front of the White House, in the late summer of 2011, 1252 people were arrested protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline which would bring a low grade oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada 2000 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. This was the biggest civil disobedience action this century in the US. After a rally concluding this two week action, 1200 people dressed in black, formed a human pipeline from the White House to the Chamber of Commerce building . . . and then deconstructed it in a colorful way, believing that to accomplish something as monumental as stopping the tar sands pipeline, it helps to do it in art first! For more information on how bad the proposed pipeline is for the environment and our climate and to learn how you can help stop it, see: www.tarsandsaction.org.

                    In his Wednesday March 19 monologue, Seth Meyers did a joke about the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (CAN-FAP)'s March 18 Bill Gates protest at TED Vancouver, and made a scurrilous allegation about CAN-FAP founder Glen Callender. In this video, Glen Callender sets the record straight.

                      By: Josué Rojas and Walter Lopez Pocho One is the child of two organizers and was raised in the Northern California Farm Worker's movement. As an image-maker and educator, Pocho is active, always with his camera in hand and his objective in mind. Wikipedia describes the word "Pocho" ("Pocha" fem.) as "a pejorative term used by native-born Mexicans to describe Chicanos who are perceived to have forgotten or rejected their Mexican heritage to some degree." Another entry describes a Pocho as "A person who frequently crosses the U.S.-Mexican border and feels at home on both sides of the border." Pocho uno has his own definition, he embraces his roots, and more importantly his place in the history of a movement. "What would the Chicano movement be without art?" Pocho asks. Enjoy
