House Magic: The European squatted social centers movement
Podcast: 

Hi everyone,

This Tuesday is an event in a year-long series of weekly conversations and exhibits in 2010 focusing on examples of Plausible Artworlds.

This week Alan Moore will join us in person to talk about the research project and exhibition House Magic: Bureau of Foreign Correspondence, which will be opening at Basekamp the same night.

House Magic: Bureau of Foreign Correspondence is a first step in a project to explore squatted social centers in Europe. The social center was a key feature of the Italian Autonomist movement of the 1970s and 80s. Squats on the Lower East Side of New York City borrowed elements of English and German social centers, including cafes, infoshops, performance spaces and art galleries. Across Europe, social centers became important organizing foci of the global justice movement during the first decade of the new century. House Magic will present this important movement through an accumulation of printed material, videos and public events.
