    being translated into practice in a radical way Art should not exist separately from our everyday lives la vie quotidienne We are to question the conditions of its production searching for the factors and elements traceable to our physical existence our real life which reverberate in it The talks given and the works presented are not merely passively consumed Usually there are long discussions the last participants in these discussion often leave well after midnight A long table in the atelier with its food and beverages available free of charge and brought on the occasion by faithful visitors of the ART HOUSE contributes to the familiar atmosphere of the events A visit will also enable you to see recent and not so recent works by Doris Schoettler Boll The Atelierhaus in the Old School of Essen Steele is situated right in the center of the Ruhr District It is easily accessible by car via the Ruhr Speedway Ruhr Schnellweg and by the regional rapid transit system the S Bahn which stops at Essen Steele There is no entrance fee but donations are gladly accepted The events are sponsored by the city of Essen and the Sparkasse Essen For more information

  • Mimi Yahn, The New Wave of Activist Art ------------------------------------------------------------------
    message into an even more powerful performance piece Such collaborative street theater pieces are becoming more and more common particularly among non artists The massive procession of coffins at the 2004 Democratic Convention in New York the December 2002 Oakland California display of coffins mourning Iraqi children the elaborate gigantic peace doves with moving wings the individuals who made activist art with duct tape on their clothes and faces the sidewalk theater pieces of Lady Liberty chained and gagged by Uncle Sam or Uncle Sam trying to wash the blood from the flag these are just a tiny fraction of the activist art being created and displayed by non artists in recent years The new wave of activist art doesn t just include visual and street theater art Over the last decade thanks in great part to the anarchist bloc music and dance have become an integral part of every demonstration The raucous drumming of the anarchists Bucket Brigades provide communal danceable music while the Radical Cheerleaders lead the crowd in dance steps and subversive chants Many activists who also play all kinds of instrument have taken to bringing them to demonstrations because invariably they ll find other musicians and form impromptu bands or hook up with an existing band At the larger demonstrations in DC or New York if you get tired of marching alongside the Bucket Brigade just hang back till the marching jazz band comes along or wait a while longer for the samba players and in between you ll likely find a group of Raging Grannies leading the crowd in the Granny Iko Iko or This Land Is Your Land The Raging Grannies are an excellent example of how the democratization of art has brought about a transformation on both the political and the personal levels Though the group was started nearly 20 years ago in Canada by a group of women who used their age and gender to get past guards into a military installation and begin singing satirical songs from the illegal side of the fence it wasn t until five years ago that momentum really began building and Raging Granny chapters popped up all over the map Though the majority of them had no past experience as singers or songwriters the combining of art with activism has emboldened them to get up and sing in front of strangers and sit down in front of recruiting stations In addition to the proliferation of theatrical die ins spy ins and other political actions the spirit of street theater has inspired a number of activists to form groups utilizing a single bold visual statement to symbolize their message In 1988 a group of Palestinian and Israeli women began a weekly vigil to protest the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip Dressing only in black and mostly remaining silent they called themselves Women In Black and held black placards in the shape of a hand with words written in white across the palm Stop
