BLUESTOCKINGS is a volunteer powered and collectively owned radical bookstore, fair trade cafe, and activist center in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Through words, art, food, activism, education, and community, we strive to create a space that welcomes and empowers all people. We actively support movements that challenge hierarchy and all systems of oppression, including but not limited to patriarchy, heterosexism, the gender binary, white supremacy and classism, within society as well as our own movements. We seek to make our space and resources available to such movements for meetings, events, and research. Additionally, we offer educational programming that promotes centered, strategic, and visionary thinking, towards the realization of a society that is infinitely creative, truly democratic, equitable, ecological, and free.

In addition to my painting being part of the show, Eric and I will be performing new material as Doll Hospital. But since I don’t have any recordings/footage of that yet, here’s Atari Teenage Riot’s new edit of “Black Flags” (with Boots Riley and parts of Anonymous involved) in the spirit of Occupy Wall St.
