DIALECTICS OF LIBERATION: RECONVENED
The Dialectics of Liberation was a unique gathering in July 1967 in London, England. The purpose of the conference was to demystify human violence in all its forms, the social systems from which it emanates, and to explore new forms of action. The conference was organized by psychiatrist, Dr Joseph Berke. Invited participants included artist Carolee Schneemann, poet Allen Ginsberg, psychiatrists Dr Leon Redler and R.D. Laing, writer Susan Shearman, activist Stokely Carmichael, anthropologist Francis Huxley and philosopher Herbert Marcuse.
The Dialectics of Liberation: Reconvened is an exploration of the ideas and goals behind the original 1967 conference. We will also embark on a new discourse into its relevance today with those who have been inspired by its legacy. The event is curated by musician and legal academic, Dee Sada. The events took place on February 6th and 7th at Cafe Oto and involved: Carolee Schneemann, Peter Davis, Dr Leon Redler, Jacky Ivimy, Geraldine Swayne, ANTIUNIVERSITY NOW and the International Times.

I curated R.D. Laing 50 on June 7th 2015 – an event to mark the 50th anniversary of The Philadelphia Association taking up residency at Kingsley Hall. Speakers included Dr Leon Redler, Dr Joseph Berke, Luke Fowler and The Bohman Brothers.
I am currently working on a new project with artist Carolee Schneemann, Dr Leon Redler and filmmaker Peter Davis.
