JUNGLE FEVER (wish you were here) ON STRIKE
for Bread and Roses centennial, Studio STRIKE, London

05/05/2012, 11am to 15pm

JUNGLE FEVER (wish you were here) is a series of site-specific collective exploration of poetics and politics of the everyday.

Taking inspiration from an extensive photo archive of strikes projected on screen, participants discussed various tools and choreographies of protest before exploring their own subjects of discontent through the production of slogans, posters and banners.

The studioSTRIKE | Bread and Roses Film Festival marked the centenary of the 1912 “Bread and Roses” textile workers strike. The centenary of the 1912 strikes created a window of opportunity to interrogate through film depictions and representations of capitalism, workers’ rights particularly female worker’s rights, strikes, social activism and immigration, debates and issues that are very much alive, if not the defining topics, of 2012.

a few that got involved; charles sawier, paula roush, sharafedi bozorgmehr, yamen badin, bruce wuilloud
