The Big Other Looms

Many thanks to everyone who came along and contributed to our events in October! Thanks to all those who came to the candle-lit book club, with a very special thanks to Dee Vora and Penelope Kupfer for facilitating.

On Friday, 9 November Silvia Bombardini and Elliot Mason will be facilitating the third in a series of book clubs on Capitalist Realism by Mark Fisher, continuing with chapters 6-7 (pages 43-65) on bureaucracy, dreams and memory.

Many thanks to everyone who came along and contributed to our quarterly meeting. We have a new volunteer coordinator for the book club! The group will reconvene at 6:30pm on 11 January 2019 to set a new course and syllabus. Please add the date to your diaries and come along with your suggestions and reading proposals.

Also in January 2019 we will have the first meeting of the research and reading group on radical pedagogy, alternative art education and self-organisation. The broader aim of this group is to create a forum for the discussion of alternative art education, with the practical aim of creating a syllabus for an alternative studio programme. The first meeting will take place at 6:30pm on 25 January 2019 to determine the syllabus and structure of the reading group. Please come along and bring your proposals, suggestions, ideas and questions.

More details on these events will be published in December. The date of the next quarterly meeting has provisionally been set for 6:30pm on 22 Feb 2019 at Larc.

Please join us for a drink this Friday, 9 November after the book club to celebrate our third birthday.

Many thanks to everyone who came along and contributed to our events in September.

A very special thanks to John Fortnum who facilitated the book club and to all the participants, artists, activists, venues, galleries and studios that we visited on the Deptford Art & Gentrification Walk! Many thanks to the campaigners, to everyone who helped out and to everyone we encountered along the way.

Very excited to be gearing up for the second independent Critical Theory in Contemporary Art Practice course on Monday!

Our next event of the season is the book club on 12 October with a discussion on the Culmination of Separation, the first chapter of Guy Debord’s book the Society of the Spectacle. The discussion will be facilitated by Penelope Kupfer and Darshana Vora.

Our first quarterly meeting is on Friday, 26 October 6:30-8:30pm at Larc and everyone is welcome to attend and contribute to our plans for the future. We will discuss the book club, the proposal for a research and reading group on radical pedagogy, alternative art education and self-organisation, a new alternative studio programme and a new series of feedback sessions.
