Collective Solipsism in Action

Art and Unrest: Out of the Coffee Shops and Into the Streets

You may remember the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) from picket lines and protests, but on January 5th you will have an opportunity to see another side of the Edmonton Branch of this dynamic fighting union. The IWW is about more than just bread-and-butter issues; it is also cultural organization belonging to a world that does not yet exist. Art need not be partisan to be political; there are few things more revolutionary than individual expression in a world where economics dominate culture.

The IWW is continuing its long-held practice of supporting working class art and culture. From Joe Hill to the early Modernists, the IWW has been at the forefront of the struggle not just for bread, but for roses too. On January 5th, 2006, join us at the opening of our ArtShow at Remedy Café.
