Come watch one of the most visceral pieces of radical cinema to be released in years. Based on text from Chris Hedges' 'Death of the Liberal Class', Temujin Doran's film 'OBEY' will assault your senses with shocking B-roll pulled from Youtube cut to an electrifying soundtrack by Clark. 'OBEY' explores the ascendence of the corporate state, social obedience in a world of disaster capitalism, inverted totalitarianism and environmental catastrophe. http://www.facebook.com/events/344524482346933/

This course will be a continuation of a free course that ran throughout the spring called The Commons, The Public Domain, and the Sacred. Each Wednesday for about three months, we met at Community Supported Everything to discuss a variety of topics, including: the theory of the commons, environmental law, the enclosure movement, public housing, the suburbs, forests, public space, temporary autonomous zones, the psychology of metropolitan life, multicultural conceptions of nature and the sacred, mythology, placemaking, science, economics, capitalism, state theory, bioregionalism, and bicycling. Basically, we took on anything that was conceivably related to the commons or interesting ways of viewing our relationship with our environment and the things in it. Because we had a group of participants from diverse backgrounds who were collectively making decisions about course content, we were able to draw from a variety of disciplines that enriched the knowledge base of all involved. All of our previous reading materials (in PDF form) and video of our discussions are posted at: http://www.mismanagingperception.com/category/right-to-the-city-free-school/. For the three weeks we are at PNCA, we will focus on the the urban commons and the Right to the City movement that is popping up around the world. I will post 2nd week's readings when I get them. Dates (Tuesdays, 7-9) July 30 Aug 6 Aug 13 http://www.facebook.com/events/550717221643858/
