Skype Discussion

We have been asked by Pippa Koszerek if she can interview us as part of an profile on alternative art schools that she is writing for Artist’s Newsletter.  We are going to do this via Skype tomorrow morning at 11am.  If you would like to take part please email and we will send you Pippa’s Skype address.

Please take a look at Pippa’s article on art school occupation here and John’s open letter below for further context.

What we are, what we do and what this blog is for

Mass Debate, Saturday

ACTION TIME – Calling all agents….

Tomorrow Morning (Saturday 18th Feb.) The Space Hijackers will be teaming up with UK Uncut to target Barclays Bank.

We intend to be taking our newest protest tool “Mass Debates” out for
an test drive, and we’d love you to join us.

Dress fairly smart, and be prepared to get down to the nitty gritty of
this whole nasty business debating with Joe Public, The Police and
whoever else we happen across.

Marx the Mole and Artaud

The political is fantastical and fantasy is political. A gathering to explore and affirm the historical roots of unfettered surrealist energy and the emancipatory thought springing from Marx and the collective body. A common space to meet and start to reclaim the eruption of unconscious energy channeled through art for everyone in an evocation of subterranean forces mixed with the documentation of protest. Reclaim the art space hijacked and privitised, by the forces of capital.
