Be In London or be in Chicago, don't bother being anywhere else, it's just not worth it!
Ownership means acquiring, maintaining, and wielding power (the power to define, select, include, and exclude). What are the sources of American ownership? What is the history of American power? How is that power exercised today?
I Hate America! (I Love America): Who Owns Myth, Pop, Money, Race, and Terror in the Land of the Free? is a six-month collaboration and conversation between artists in the UK and the US - culminating on November 30, 2013 in concurrent daylong events in London and Chicago. Through presentations, conversation and video, the 10-hour event features artists, activists, scholars, and volunteers who will research, dissect, explore, discuss, protest, celebrate, and argue about the United States.
UK and US events will take place simultaneously on Saturday, November 30, 2013 at the Glass Factory in London (from 1:00 p.m to 11:00 p.m.) andDefibrillator Gallery in Chicago (from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).
I Hate America! (I Love America): Who Owns Myth, Pop, Money, Race, and Terror in the Land of the Free? is supported by DIY 10: 2013, a Live Art Development Agency initiative in collaboration with Platform. Additional funding for the project provided by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York.
The work is produced by Lucky Pierre and is created, organized and realized with 31 collaborating UK and US artists. Community may or may not be built, but action will be attempted through discussions between former empire and shaky empire.
