Anarchist Studies Network Conference – Making Connections Loughborough University 3-5th September 2012
'A thousand lines of flight': Post-anarchism and Contemporary Art
'Post-anarchism decentralizes the political movement, motions toward tactical rather than strategic action, brings anarchist thought into touch with a range of influences …and provides the foundation for a thousand lines of flight' (Duane Rouselle, 2011)
In 2003, David Graeber wrote about 'new anarchism' as a meshing of practice and theory which embraced horizontalist, open-ended experimental approaches to revolutionary vision and strategies. In this panel stream we ask – what does a post-anarchist art practice look like? What does it sound like? How and where does it function? We invite – and bring together - theorists and practitioners to offer contributions which explore these questions through discourse, practice, performance or intervention, experimentally, practically, gesturally, impossibly.
