RED MAY
CURATED BY “THIS MIGHT NOT WORK”
INSTALLATION BY HAMI BAHADORI & JO KJAERGAARD
Opening event: 08.04.2017 15:00



The RED MAY events will happen during the month of May 2017 in Seattle and Helsinki. The works gathered by This Might Not Work will be an extension to the RED MAY festival, in order to support and promote these initiatives. The selected works have been either donated or made specifically for this platform by artists in regard to the current political situation of the world and United States. With the raise of far-right nationalism, fascism, and continuous war and destabilization of the Middle East, a part of the works gathered are addressing a frustration due to discrimination against various minorities, LGBTQ, migrant, nomad, Black Lives Matter, Native American, etc. The aim is to provide a space to generate conversations in analyzing the contemporary issues through Marxism, political economy, feminism, philosophy, and postcolonial theory in academic and non-academic settings in different locations in Seattle and Helsinki.

MAYBE WE CAN’T MOVE BEYOND CAPITALISM BY NEXT WEEK BUT WE CAN SURE AS HELL TAKE A VACATION FROM IT.
