Posted on September 19, 2011

Project Goleb Presents:


Instrument by Jem Cohen (1999) 

+ (PR) Evens by Max Le Cain & Tim Furey (2006)


Introduction to the project:

Hannah Arendt’s

The Crisis in Culture: Its Social and Its Political Significance

Organized by Jeremiah Day


Straight Edge Inspired Music!! by André Avelãs 

As the precursor of Goleb’s coming film series At night we are consumed by fire and the introduction to Day’s Arendt project, The Crisis in Culture: Its Social and Its Political Significance, this evening will present two documentaries about Dischord Records, the home of musical groups such as Fugazi and Minor Threat.  Following Arendt’s focus on the distinction between culture and entertainment, the program will consider the way Dischord Records’ founder Ian Mackaye has tried to organize a practice in which music is not reduced to consumption, and as an example of the engagement of art with public life.  Also discussed will be the 2005 Cork Caucus, an international forum of artists and thinkers, of which (PR) Evens was one of its legacies.

– – Open Call for Participants – – 

Reading The Crisis in Culture 11:00

No preparation required; open to the public.  As opposed to a conference, in which existing knowledge is gathered for distribution, here we aim to establish a framework in which speculative insights and reflection can lead to new understanding.  Gathering together to read out-loud the text and discuss it fosters a peer-exchange and pluralistic dialogue, not only of theoretical questions but practical experiences and problems.  The ongoing reading group organized by the If I Can’t Dance I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution platform, has also been invited to participate.  Forthcoming reading sessions will be held October 15th and November 5th.
