Dario Azzellini, Immanuel Ness & Victor Wallis
Capitalism would have us believe we need our bosses. This volume, edited by Immanuel Ness and Dario Azzellini, reveals the history of workers who dare to disagree. From the dawning of the industrial epoch, wage earners have gone so far as to challenge the very premises of the system by creating institutions of democratic self-management aimed at controlling production without bosses. With specific examples drawn from every corner of the globe and every period of modern history, this new book comprehensively traces this often underappreciated historical tradition.

UGLY ART ROOM PRESENTS: ALL THAT REMAINS
From its abstract roots in Cubism to the political and counter culture movements of Dada and Punk, collage has always been a product of its environment. With the rise of 24 hour media cycles, social networks and search engines, contemporary culture has effectively rendered print media obsolete, creating a virtual boom in discarded paper ephemera for collage artists to examine and reinvent. Through these discarded remnants collage artists have become the archivists and activists of this post modern age, paralleling the frenetic pace in which we live while exposing the voyeuristic and often disjointed nature of popular culture.

The 4th Annual Poetry Brothel Masquerade
Hello my quails, my cabbages, my figs and doe-eyed dears, Once again we’ve found ourselves at the bottom of Fall. In this time of fantastic decay, the poetry whores are back in season. The dizziness of summer has passed, and their words are ripe with clove scent, wool hearts, and the short breaths of winter. The poetry whores may be shutting their windows, but my cohorts and I are loosening the lock on the door to the infamous Back Room. Come and dance out the reds and help us sing in the golden spirit of the Masquerade. Masks will change hands as the night unfolds, though you are obliged to bring your own. Dress for the occasion, one and all, do not resist the Masquerade! Ten dollars will set your feet and soul aloft inside the most dignified house of illusions in this city.

Inspired by the micro and macrocosms of nature, ecstatic spiritual and athletic experiences, dream, destiny, ritual, prayer, ancestry, and visions throughout Art and beyond… Dance floor, prairie, pow-wow, synagogue, church, mountain top, ocean, forest, desert, track and field, fighting ring, mosh pit … Ferocious love! An historic event for expansive sound and emotion; unnamable sound, unnamable emotion. We are the world! Communion between us all…

This month the topic addressed will be Collecting, Curating and Conserving; the guest curator will be Sandra Skurvida.
