Culture Power Politics
Currently at Doomed Gallery until the 10th of July, Jeremy Gilbert is leading a series of seminars about culture, power and politics. We went to the first seminar this week, about feminism, liberalism and the politics of gender. Lots of interesting topics (biopolitics, the rise of the alt-right, housing politics in London) are being feautured in the coming seminars, and we would recommend you to go! This series of ongoing events is meant to be a good way of learning more about important topics, as knowledge is a crucial weapon in the war against all forms of inequality.
The events run on Tuesdays betwewen 6.30 - 8.30 at Doomed Gallery until the 10th of July. Read more here.

We saw The Inheritance Part I this week, a new play written by Matthew Lopez and directed by Stephen Daldry (of Billy Elliot fame). It's an devastatingly accurate depiction of life for a group of contemporary young gay New Yorkers. Using a clever historical narrative, the play sets their often funny, messed up lives against the haunting loneliness of being gay in the century before legalisation, and the horror of the 1980s AIDS crisis. Powerful, hilarious and incredibly moving.
