I have begun working on a new project titled “Living With The Bomb”. It is a project exploring nuclear proliferation, nuclear disarmament, and peoples movements for the abolition of nuclear weapons. I have began a few associated sites related to the exploration and development of the work. There is a wordpress site relating to research and development of the project that can be found here. I have also started a timeline relating to my research that can be found here. Both of these site are in progress and will act as a supplement to the larger project and to the work produced.
The first iteration of the work is scheduled for exhibition at the Frank Juarez Gallery at the end of November.

To mark the closing day of the “Posters of Inspirational European Women: Taken from the zine Shape & Situate” exhibition, Space Station Sixty Five in London hosted a collection of resources from other sociopolitical art, poster, zine and publication projects for everyone to explore. Inspirational work featured, displayed, exhibited and screened included projects such as: the Celebrate People’s History poster project, Occuprint, Inspired Agitators, Dead Feminists, Peops, Great Anarchists, and many more.
A great recap of the events can be found on the blog- glue, a glove and some plyers.

Some of my work is included in this great show in Pittsburgh at Future Tenant- details below…
[Text From Justseeds Website]
Guns vs. Butter is an exhibition of anti-war graphics, bringing together the contemporary print work of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative alongside posters from the historical collection housed in the Interference Archive. The exhibition contextualizes the work of current socially-motivated graphics alongside a history of posters as an integral element of popular grassroots movements against war, colonialism, and military occupation.
This exhibition is currently on at Future Tenant in Pittsburgh, PA until Jan.6, 2013. More details here.

A new book is out “We Are Wisconsin: The Wisconsin uprising in the words of the activists, writers, and everyday Wisconsinites who made it happen” edited by Erica Sagrans, a writer, activist, and organizer who has worked for Nancy Pelosi and Organizing for America.
From the Kickstarter description:
In February of 2011, the people of Wisconsin changed the political landscape in America overnight. In response to their Republican governor’s move to strip workers of the basic right to organize, Wisconsinites decided to fight back—occupying their Capitol for days on end and protesting in record numbers throughout the freezing Madison winter. Their bold action inspired progressives across the country, and revived the conversation on organized labor, direct-action, and civil resistance.
We Are Wisconsin gives an up-close,view of the Wisconsin struggle, as told by the grassroots activists, independent journalists, and Wisconsinites who led the fight. This collection of essays, blog posts, and original writing looks at what happened, what it means, and what comes next—including the real-time, fast-paced story of the Capitol occupation as told through tweets from those who were on the inside.
We Are Wisconsin will be released in August, and will be one of first books out on the Wisconsin fight.
