HM#2 on Display, but Still Unripe...


Why so mute? Angst, I guess. But it’s been rolling, for real. "House Magic" zine number 2 has been beautifully designed and photocopied, and a few issues have trickled out (Bluestockings, Printed Matter). Yes, it was in proof in January for Philadelphia, and now it is spring -- but there remain still some problems, and some of it must be amputated. The pdf will be online in two weeks, for certain. (Contact me directly and I'll send you the current version.) Meanwhile, HM#2 was displayed in a nice display rack in the zine library at ABC No Rio for the Ides of March show this month. That show closes on Friday (4-9, 7pm), and zines related to the OSC movement will be sold for cost of copying. We will also sell “moonshine” made by the Aaron Burr Society. Next stop, the 4th Annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair at Judson Church (4-17, 11am-7pm), where the project will have a table display. Come on by and see, say "hi!", and talk about your experiences with the OSC movement for the record. Over the break – I am struggling with teaching early modern art history – I was in Madrid to talk at the new Patio Maravillas at Calle Pez 21. I was supposed to talk at La Macula, but they were evicted a few days before. The talk took me by surprise, so I rambled on, mostly about New York City. Miguel Martinez invited me: he has posted his SQEK group’s research agenda now, and is planning an international meeting in London in later June. I want to be there, after (even overlapping) the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit. Thereafter Amsterdam, Hamburg, and Berlin. A leisurely summer is in prospect. BTW: A nasty situation developing in San Diego for Ricardo Dominguez because of his group's work on behalf of migrants. Read and support: http://bang.calit2.net/
