> Please excuse this unsolicited approach from fellow artists. We are
> contacting you because we know you share our deep concern for Palestinian
> artists struggling to sustain cultural life in intractably difficult
> circumstances of occupation and denial of basic human rights. Recent events
> have given us, once again, grim evidence of Israeli intransigence.
> There is no need to feel helpless in the face of these injustices, even
> though they proceed with impunity due to the apathy or complicity of world
> powers. We believe that, as cultural workers and members of civil society,
> we have a moral and practical power which can shift the dynamics at work in
> Israel?s relationship with the outside world and strengthen moves towards
> equality, freedom and justice for Palestinians.
> Hence the pledge below, which we have signed. Artists in South Africa,
> Canada and Ireland have already signed up to similar pledges in large
> numbers. We believe that many people working across the arts in the UK will
> wish to do likewise.
> Please read <http://www.thefreedomtheatre.org/news/36377/> this call <
> http://www.thefreedomtheatre.org/news/36377/> from Palestinian performing
> arts organisations just issued on July 17th, and this <
> http://pacbi.org/etemplate.php?id=869> Palestinian call for cultural
> boycott, and consider adding your name to the pledge below. Names of
> signatories will not be publicised until a critical mass has been reached
> and signatories notified.
> If you would like to sign, or to discuss this request, by phone or in
> person, please do get in touch with the campaign organisers at

> on Friday July 25, 2014,
> TODAY, THE PRODUCTION OF CULTURE IS AN EXPANDING SPHERE OF
> ACTIVITY: ON THE ONE HAND, IT IS THE SPACE WHERE NEW MEANINGS AND FORMS
> OF SUBJECTIVITY ARE CREATED AND WHERE THE MOST RADICAL FORMS OF ACTIVITY
> ARE TESTED - YET AT THE SAME TIME IT IS PRECISELY AT THIS JUNCTURE WHERE
> WE ENCOUNTER SOME OF THE MOST GLARING FORMS OF EXPLOITATION AND CONTROL,
> WHERE THE GAIN OF PROFIT SEEMS UNRESTRICTED AND SPECULATION IS EMBEDDED
> IN THE VERY LOGIC OF PRODUCTION. AT THE SAME TIME, CULTURAL PROCESSES
> CANNOT BE REDUCED SIMPLY TO PRODUCTION SCHEMES. THE SYSTEM OF PRODUCTION
> AND REPRODUCTION OF HIERARCHIES AND VALUES INEVITABLY COMES INTO
> CONFLICT WITH THE VERY NATURE OF FREE CREATIVE ACTS. CULTURE MUST RETAIN
> ITS AMATEURISH, JOYFUL APPROACH, TO FREELY SHARE ITS VALUES WITH SOCIETY
> - IT SHOULD REFUSE TO CONFORM DIRECTLY TO THE VULGAR LOGIC OF SALE AND
> WE INVITE YOU TO IMAGINE A DIFFERENT SYSTEM OF ART AND
> CULTURE, WHICH WOULD NOT ONLY GUARANTEE DECENT WORKING CONDITIONS TO THE
> MAJORITY OF ITS PARTICIPANTS, BUT ALSO STIMULATE THE CREATION OF AN
> EMANCIPATORY CULTURAL SPHERE. WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS AND POSSIBILITIES
> OF ALTERNATIVE ART WORLDS? HOW CAN WE ENGAGE AND USE OUR IMAGINATION,
> AVOIDING, AT THE SAME TIME, THE TRAPS OF UTOPIAN THINKING?
> THESE ARE
> SOME OF THE QUESTIONS AT THE CENTER OF THE NEW ISSUE OF THE ARTLEAKS
> GAZETTE, ENTITLED "(AN)OTHER ART WORLD(S)? IMAGINATION BEYOND FICTION."
> THE GAZETTE WILL BE PRESENTED IN A SITE-SPECIFIC DISPLAY AT DIVUS LONDON
> BY CORINA APOSTOL, OPENING JULY 25TH. ON JULY 26TH THERE WILL BE A
> PARTICIPATORY WORKSHOP, INVITING YOU TO PLAY OUT YOUR FANTASIES OF NEW,
> JUST FORMS OF ORGANIZATION OF CREATIVE LIFE, MODEST PROPOSALS FOR THE
> FUTURE THAT MAY COUNTER THE SHABBY REALITY OF THE PRESENT.
> FREE AND
> OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
> _The ArtLeaks Gazette is an activist publication
> produced by core members of ArtLeaks, an organization founded in 2011 as
> an international platform for cultural workers where instances of abuse,
> corruption and exploitation are exposed and submitted to public inquiry.
> Through our gazette, we stress the urgent need to seriously transform
> these workers__'__ relationships with the institutions, networks and
> economies involved in the production,reproduction and consumption of art
> and culture. We pursue these goals through developing a new approach to
> the tradition of institutional critique and through fostering new forms
> of artistic production that might challenge the dominant discourses of
> criticality and social engagement that tame and contain creative forces.
