Our programme is starting to take shape, but we must hold our breath a wee bit longer: final registrations from both artists and academics are due in by May 30.
After that, we’ll be able to set out our programme and will be posting it here for your perusal. For now, just know that you can look forward not only to talks by Hito Steyerl and Simon Critchley but also to art installations and video projections; academic talks on miniature tents, Occupy silk-screens, museums; and much much more.
In the meantime, in honor of the fact that two of our team have been proudly educated in the institutions (and on the streets) of Quebec, we thought we’d share news of student protests in Montreal which today, in defiance of new anti-protest (anti-democracy) laws, swelled in numbers to at least 200,000. Not bad for a city of only three million!
