"the hour-long piece...stirred up such strong feelings—about love and friendship, about anger that seethes up under everyday good manners, about tenderness, about cooperation, about hope—that I wanted to hug it to me"—Arts Journal review of #Aroundtown // Tonight is your last chance to catch @dorfmandance's latest work at the Harvey! 📷: @j_cervantes

Next up in our @wendyssubway Reading Room series, we’re featuring PARMER—a curatorial platform for exhibiting, programming, and writing focused on queer and feminist strategies and post-colonial analysis. PARMER considers the potential of matrilineal relations filtered through a feminist temporality to consider how we inherit and invoke narratives and weave these into the future tense of what will have been. The library selection reflects counter-patriarchal and extra-hegemonic narratives. #WSxBAM

In 1975, the tyrannical Khmer Rouge came to power in Cambodia following a brutal civil war. Over the course of the next four years the regime held power, some 1.7 million Cambodians died from starvation, disease, overwork, and genocide. The Khmer Rouge targeted intellectuals, artists, actors, and musicians as undesirables because they didn’t fit Pol Pot's image of a new #Cambodia—a country free of all outside influence and any remnant of what he considered “decadent” culture.

The overall effect of this campaign against creatives was disastrous for the country's cultural landscape. By the time the Vietnamese drove the Khmer Rouge from power in 1979, most artists were dead, in exile, or too traumatized to practice their craft. Over on the #BAMblog, we partnered with illustrator @gelgud to honor five Cambodian visionaries lost during this tragic time in conjunction with Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia, coming to the #BAMNextWave this weekend on Dec 15 & 16 👉🏻 BAM.org/blog (link in bio) 🇰🇭

In Farmhouse/Whorehouse (tonight—Sat at BAM Fisher), performance artist #SuzanneBocanegra enlists the talents of actress #LiliTaylor to mine her Texan upbringing and aesthetic influences to make sense of our collective subconscious. Inspired by Bocanegra’s grandparents who lived on a small farm across the road from the Chicken Ranch (aka the “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”), the artist lecture incorporates text, costumes, video projections, and a new song by @mybrightestdiamond to consider the American myth of rural utopia. Limited tix still available! 📸: @georgiaphotonyc #BAMNextWave

This week in the @wendyssubway Reading Room, we’re featuring The Surplus Library’s collection consists of books on the topic of affect and economic exchange. The association of these two terms is based on the assumption that personal relationships are produced by economic activity, for example in the process of trade and the division of labor. Conversely, affect, and in particular desire, generates economic transactions; it is the needing and wanting that demands to be satisfied by goods or immaterial values, such as care, attention, and love, all of which entail multifarious forms of exchange. Books of this distributed library—with currently over 30 branches in five countries—can be accessed through person-to-person borrowing and lending in the physical world facilitated by the library’s website (www.thesurpluslibrary.com). On view in the #WSxBAM Reading Room are recently registered volumes of the Surplus Library’s new local branch.

This #WorldAIDSDay, we remember the countless artists lost to HIV/AIDS (like Arnie Zane, left) and remain committed to those currently fighting the pandemic (like Bill T. Jones, right). Stay strong. Stay informed. Get tested. And remember, treatment is prevention.

"Where much of the digital world finds us sorting ourselves neatly into cultural and ideological silos, the train, in my experience, does precisely the opposite"—singer-songwriter @gabrielkahane in the @nytimes in a piece about the cross-country journey that inspired his new work, 8980: Book of Travelers. The show has its world premiere TONIGHT in the BAM Harvey Theater, and runs through Saturday.

"Take what’s happening onstage too literally, and you (and it) are in trouble. See it as some sort of 'Twilight of the Gods' fantasy that taps into our most shameful primal instincts, and you’re likely to find yourself sky high, breathless and hypnotized."—@nytimes reviews The Fountainhead, here through Sat, Dec 2 ONLY: BAM.org/TheFountainhead #BAMNextWave

AND is a publishing platform and collaborative practice based in London. Since 2009, AND has explored the politics and infrastructures of publishing and dissemination asking: why publish, how, and for whom? For the #WSxBAM Reading Room, AND selected—as an act of support of precarious practices in our local activist community—publications that are hard to find in standard distribution channels. They tell about practices of educational activism, radical, queer
pedagogy, reclaiming teaching as a political, performative, and transformative act. AND is run by Rosalie Schweiker and Eva Weinmayr.
