The 13th NYC Anarchist Book Fair has been set for September 6th and 7th, at Judson Memorial, 55 Washington Square South, in the City of New York.
The NYC Anarchist Book Fair aims at contributing to the ongoing dialogue, analysis and practice of current society, increasing knowledge about history, and create inspiration for the building of liberation alternatives such as mutual aid, autonomy, solidarity, collectivize and consensus based decision making, to name a few.
The NYC Anarchist Art Festival and the Emma Golden Film Festival will take place alongside the book fair. The book fair is paying tribute to the anarchist and activist Willen Van Sprosen, who was killed as he tried to disrupt ICE camps activities, and the counterculture anarchist artist Ben Morea.
An exhibition of Morea’s drawings (featured in this year’s book fair Poster) will be exhibited and Morea will host a workshop/dialogue session around Revolutionary Animism. Workshops also include Silvia Federici talking about “The Struggle for the Commons” and debates on queer- trans feminisms, Antifa, immigration and ecology anarchism, among others. The book fair this year will offer a care-space, where healing practitioners and artists will offer group and individual care experiences.
The Art Festival takes place on Friday from 7 pm to 12 am, with a diverse lineup including 30+ artists, focusing on performance art and collective creation collaboration, inspired by Ben Morea’s concept of revolutionary Animism.
The Emma Goldman Film Festival will focus on Narratives from Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, particularly on the indigenous people in Brazil, on Saturday from 7 to 9 pm.
All events take place at the Judson Memorial, 55 Washington Square Park South. The venue, in a neighborhood long associated with the anarchist movement in the U.S., has hosted the NYC Anarchist Book Fair nearly every year since its inception.
