"Truth is concrete" is a 24-hour, 7-day marathon camp: for 170 hours more than 200 artists, activists and theorists lecture, perform, play, produce, discuss and collect useful strategies and tactics in art and politics... The marathon is the centre, surrounded by a camp-like living and working environment, a social space with its own needs and timings... The programme of the marathon is accompanied by one-day-workshops, several durational projects and an exhibition. And – most important – by a parallel "Open marathon" that is based on self-organisation: its content is produced entirely by the participants – everybody is welcome to fill the slots, spontaneously or a couple of days in advance..." - from the Truth is Concrete website
Who else will be there? Funny you should ask...

Sounds pretty crazy. Anyway, Pinky and I will be making a presentation titled Unpleasant Cat Stories for Learning on Saturday September 22 at the Black Cube at 1pm - please come if you are in or nearby Austria. The rest of the week, I'm guessing Pinky and I will just use the time to talk and learn with everybody else, our favorite thing to do.
Oh, by the way, isn't the cover of program
the best cover you've ever seen? I wonder who could have crocheted such a
fabulous work of art? (Hint: It's me. Project background info here.)

Hope to see you in Graz!Posted by Bunny.
