This project is a collaboration between Radar and Loughborough University’s Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa) and brings together research in to the radical traditions of the political pamphlet and contemporary art practice. We are delighted to be working with artists and collectives Ruth Beale, Freee, Ferenc Gróf, Patrick Goddard, Little Riot Press, Ciara Phillips, Rory Pilgrim.
Comprising a two day public event, an exhibition and the production of a new book: Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer (published part of the RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa) book series with Bloomsbury) For and Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet responds to research into the political pamphlet and exploring the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice.
