But Does it Work?
Art, Activism and the Interventionist’s Gesture

Tuesday, February 24, 6:30 pm
A Conversation between Joseph DeLappe, Stephen Duncombe, and Steve Lambert

Artists/activists Joseph DeLappe and Steve Lambert join writer/activist/media scholar Stephen Duncombe to discuss what happens when artists interfere with existing structures of media in order to manipulate and use them as vehicles for political and social commentary. How do these forms of intervention compare to straight-forward art activism, and what are these artists hoping to achieve? How does one even measure success when utopia is the goal? The talk will focus on the artists’ works “dead-in-iraq”, “” and the recent faux New York Times “Special Edition” announcing the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


The Flying University is a Red76 project.

Red76 is going to be doing a project called Pop-Up Book Academy in Sam Gould’s hotel room on Tuesday the 10th. If you are free it would be great to see you there. Also, we are looking for books for people to sell for the project. Do you have any that you would be interested in getting rid of? You would get the majority of the profits, while a percentage of all sales would go to a fund to produce future projects in print form by Red76 and like-minded associates.

Contact me and I will get you info on the hotel and room number. It starts at 6pm.

I’m speaking at Transmediale without going. The session is called Critical Consumer Practice

I’m doing this because of a combination of reasons: carbon footprint, doctors orders, and the still persistent utopian desire for the network to actually connect us.

Transmediale has live streams, which are documented here. It will be going on starting at 7AM in New York, and is a salon, not a panel. It will last three hours, and I will be somewhere in there for 30 minutes.
