Culture War Now!!
The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest is looking to promote actions, images, projects, and ideas that thrive in spaces of refusal by embodying alternative ways of being.
A function of art is to shape consciousness- a truth embodied demands reality structure itself around it. The Fascists' Agenda will not win because it cannot erase all un-conforming bodies. Images of refusal expand collective ideas of truth and possibility.
Oâ€™ heretic- what discoveries have you made? Perform your difference, our otherness. You experience the sublime in places other than death. We want your living gay agenda. Show us how you donâ€™t need their foreign oil. Illustrate your day-to-day diet for a new america. We want to see the means by which you live otherwise.
The truths we live refute the notion that George Bushâ€™'s own God created the universe for him to run. While they believe....
-endless war creates freedom
-the goals of global capitalsm should dictate social policy
-love is only between a man and a woman
-resource depletion and waste are the driving forces of a functioning economy
... we know otherwise.
If it is a culture war they want then shall we fight!
All media, actions and performances will be considered.
