ELSEWHERE & OTHERWISE 11 Liquid solidarities : the magnetics of Grief, Erosion & Courage (July 2nd-12th 2024)

all bodies possible ~ all bodies welcome

Once a year we live together. In times characterised by profound and far-reaching forms of grief and disconnection—times of genocides and ecocides, extractivism, exploitation, chronic psychological and physical burn-outs and a lot of other normalised crises— we want to look at how to organise in solidarity without burning our energies in (proxy-)wars, unprocessed feelings, desensitisation, and loss of spirit.

…It is Pathetic. I love it. May 5th - 12th

“In everything I write whether it’s poetry or an essay I assume an audience, that is to say I assume that interaction. It’s not a personal event.”

- June Jordan

“I don’t know why I got so offended”

- Grace Paley

…It is pathetic. I love it. is a meeting for playing with writing as it provokes doubt, offence, secrecy, perversity and defensiveness. It will take place from 5th-12th May 2024, and you are warmly invited to participate.

Permanent ceasefire NOW!

Permanent ceasefire NOW!

End the occupation of Palestine NOW!

As we bear witness to yet another iteration of the colonial violence that has built, and continues to sustain Europe, we invite all to act in solidarity with the Palestinian people, as well as the Israelis who suffer from, and oppose the brutality of occupation.

The Mattress

In pop culture lore, mattresses are infamously used as savings accounts — repositories of cash squirreled away, stuffed out of sight. Performing Art Forums’s mattresses represent the bedrock (pun intended) of what PAF provides: a bare minimum of comfort and care in a space receptive to its inhabitants.
