PROMOTION OF THE 2019 POLITICAL SCHOOL FANZINE
FRIDAY 05/07/2019, 8 PM
BAZA, ADŽIJINA 11
This year our Political School for Artists (And Other Interested Parties) saw its fourth generation of participants.
Over four weekends in March through May 2019, the attendees participated in an intensive educational program that included an insight into the history of capitalism and the foundations of political economy, introduction to the history and perspectives of socialism as the alternative to capitalism, introduction to the issue and examples of historical revisionism, both globally and regionally, and, finally, a discussion on the possibilities of workers’ and artists’ unionisation.
In its format and program, the Political School tried to respond to the lack of political education, especially to its implications in the field of art. Although it is impossible to compensate for the above lack in a single semester of a project that is limited in duration, the Political School’s organisers, lecturers and participants sought to take a step forward in the direction of common politicisation and collective building from below.
The fanzine created by this year’s class of the Political School came about through a desire for the group to continue its work together and articulate political attitudes and knowledge inspired by the School, both through text and illustration. It was conceived and produced by the participants in its entirety: from the production of texts, through editing and proofreading, to graphic design. In that sense, it is heterogeneous in terms of its content and form, and reflects the topics that the participants found particularly inspiring or provoking. These topics were largely those that pertain to feminist theory and practice, and the relationship between art and labour.
The promotion of the 2019 Political School fanzine is an opportunity for all generations of participants and lecturers, as well as other interested parties, to gather and discuss the subjects raised in the fanzine, and an opportunity for informal socializing and mutual empowerment.
Join us, all are invited!
