|Location:||Mixed Blood Theater - 1501 South 4th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55454|
|Description:||Art is one of the fundamental aspects of the human condition. Whether visual, performance, music, etc., art represents a kind of mirror in which society can see itself reflected. What does art through the ages and today say about the society we are living in? Socialists fight not only for the economic emancipation of the working class, but for the very soul of the human species, for a society in which everyone's potential can be developed to the full. Freed from the humiliating dependence and stifling constraints of the profit system, art, culture, and science will blossom as never before. To make life beautiful is the greatest of all causes. How can artists use their talents in the struggle for a fundamental transformation of the world? |
Alan Woods, world-renowned Marxist theoretician, author, and chief political editor of the In Defense of Marxism website (www.marxist.com), will give a one-night-only, special presentation on "Art and the Class Struggle" at the Mixed Blood Theater. Bring your ideas, questions, friends, co-workers, classmates, and family and join in this important and informative discussion.
This event is free and open to the public. Donations to help defray the costs of renting the auditorium space are appreciated. We will have a wide selection of books and booklets by Alan and other materials available for purchase. There is plenty of parking available in the neighborhood (for example, the ramp at 19th Ave & Riverside and the pre-pay kiosk lot across from Mixed Blood on 4th St.) For more information, for media opportunities, or to co-sponsor this event, please contact John Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-373-7609.
