    Philadelphia Assembled joins art and civic engagement. Shaped by hundreds of collaborators, it tells a story of radical community building and active resistance. Challenging, inspiring, and as big as the city, Philadelphia Assembled asks: how can we collectively shape our futures?

    'This is not about gentrification’

    A cooperative bakery in the shadow of Liverpool FC’s stadium is aiming to transform a derelict terrace into affordable homes for the local community. As Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium gleams in the April sunshine, the abandoned, steel-shuttered houses cowering in its shadow serve as a poignant reminder of the impact developments can have on their host communities.

    Book launch What's the Use?

    What's the Use? Constellations of Art, History, and Knowledge (Valiz, Van Abbemuseum, L'Internationale, 2016), is a collection of essays on the 'uses' of art. The starting point of the Reader is that art is an integral part of social, economic, and political processes, and that it is best understood in dialogue with these contexts, rather than as a 'thing in itself'. In their contributions, artists and writers explore the exchange between art, use, knowledge and history; now and in the past.

  • Nov 15, 2019https://www.instagram.com/p/B45al_ZldAU/In solidarity with #zwartepietisracisme #repost @bakbasis ・・・ In the Netherlands, BAK's home, threats to and organized violence have been perpetrated against anti-racist organizers and activists who are working to eliminate the Dutch blackface "tradition" of Zwarte Piet. One of the many people being targeted by this violence is Mitchell Esajas @mitch_positivity, current BAK Fellow, who has been targeted for his affiliation with Kick Out Zwarte Piet (KOZP). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ BAK fully supports Mitchell and activist work to eliminate racial oppression in the Netherlands and beyond. If you would like to know more about the incidents and protests happening now or to support the people being threatened and physically harmed, please check the KOZP Solidarity Fund, link in bio!
