Ben Morea followed by Red an Black Club

We’re Here to Talk About the Family: A discussion with Ben Morea
17th June, 18.00-19.30, LARC, 62 Fieldgate Street, London.

Please join us for an open discussion with Ben Morea, publisher of Black Mask (1966-1968), and member of Up Against the Wall/Motherfuckers (1968-1969).

Active in the art and anarchist communities of New York City’s Lower East Side from 1959-1969, Morea dropped out of public sight for 35 years before resurfacing at New York’s 16Beaver space in June 2004 at an event or…ganized by Eve Hinderer. Things in the world had apparently gotten too bad, too similar to the conditions of the late-60’s–when Morea was both theorizing and practicing an insurgent form of street action to challenge all forms of authority–for Ben to not try to help. Since 2004 Morea has given a number interviews and participated in a series of public discussions to share his experiences in “The Family,” as he refers to the Motherfuckers, with the hopes that today’s militants might find their story useful.

Afterwards there will be Red N Black Club (LARC Benefit) starting its night of cheap drinks, madchester music and nice mellow times.
