While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Radical Reading Group
February 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This is going to be a monthly reading group dedicated to writings and other media sources, around radical political theory, history, poetry, narratives, etc. Themes may include radical feminism, green anarchy, civil rights issues, ecological concerns, gender issues, and everything in between. Content will be posted on event pages and then discussed at the event. Feel free to attend even if you haven’t consumed the material. Please check the event page for guiding questions and links to content.
Theme of first reading group: Political Imagination
What do we mean by political imagination?
What might it mean to “open-up” political imagination and why/how might this be useful?
How does the prole.info piece imagine our everyday relationships (to one another through work, community, media, etc.)? And what does the piece suggest (if anything) that we do to change them?
How does the Tyler the Creator song imagine our everyday relationships and are there suggestions for changing them?
Why might it be important to utilize multiple levels of engagement to open up the political imagination?
What are some limits of imagining and how do we move into political possibility?
