This 40 minutes documentary examines the protests against the Republican National Convention. The city, state, and the President’s lawyers attempted to deny the right to peaceable assembly for the protesters. How do groups like Billionaires for Bush, the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army, and 1000 Coffins respond?
“Carnivals Against Capital: Radical Clowning and the Global Justice Movement,”
essay in the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies-sponsored collection “The Arts and Cultural Politics of Carnival.”
(Under review by Duke U. Press)
The idea of Bakhtinian “Carnival,” a topsy-turvy, egalitarian moment where the masses enact a fleeting utopia and/or let off some steam, has been discussed in academia ad nauseum. How is this idea relevant to the new social movements, and how have those movements adapted it to their own ideologies?
“The Clown Army Crosses the Thames,”
in The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest on-line, August 2004.
An account of the first action of the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army, from when we first created it in London in 2003 to welcome George W. Bush to his official visit to the Queen. Bonus content: one of my more nauseating political cartoons, spliced and inter-weaved with the text.
