Truth is ConcreteI contributed a text Generosity to Truth is Concrete, a publication launched on 26th April 2014.

Truth is Concrete was emblazoned over Bertolt Brecht’s desk while in exile in Denmark, a constant reminder in times of extreme social turbulence to remember political reality.

How can art play a role in social and political struggles? 

Can it be a tool to shape the world, rather than a mere reflection?

Following Steirischer Herbst festival’s twenty-four hour, seven-day marathon camp, Truth is Concrete: A Handbook for Artistic Strategies in Real Politics takes the possibility of concrete truth as a working hypothesis for both art and activism, and looks for direct action and concrete knowledge. In art practices that engage performatively in specific political and social situations, and activism that searches for intelligent, creative means of self-empowerment.
