"Nietzsche & Cinema" Film Series

New York City, Winter, 2006

The NIETZSCHE CIRCLE announces the inauguration of its film and discussion series

NIETZSCHE & CINEMA is a recurring film series which will explore the relationship between Nietzsche’s philosophy and cinema, examining his influence on screenwriters, directors, film theorists such as Gilles Deleuze, as well as the affect of his aesthetic vision on cinema.

Films will be screened which explicitly explore his life or philosophy or which embody the Nietzschean spirit: works in which a transvaluation of values is sought, or similar critiques of culture, religion, art, and politics are being made, while we will also examine the misappropriation, distortion, and abuse of Nietzsche’s ideas. When possible, directors and screenwriters will be invited to discuss their works with noted film critics, cinema historians, and philosophy professors. At the end of each session, a dialogue will be conducted with the spectators. The series will feature classic films, lesser known works, short and experimental films, as well as contemporary cinematic works. When possible, all works will be screened in their original format.

New York City, Jan. 10, 2006

The January Anarchist Forum

On Tuesday, January 10, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's
Anarchist Forum will present stand-up comic and Obie winner Steve Ben
Israel who will perform his one-man show ”Non-Violent Executions.” Although
it contains both comic and political elements Ben Israel considers the show
to be a séance to contact the living.

Steve made his debut in the Greenwich
Village coffee house Renaissance in 1959 and since has performed often with
the Living Theatre. After the presentation Steve will have an extensive
open discussion with the audience about how performance art can be shaped
around social and political questions.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum, 451 West Street,
Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets)

Take an A, C, E, or L train to the 14th Street and 8th Avenue subway stop
or take a 1, 2, or 3 train to the 14th Street and 7th Avenue stop.

Everybody is welcome and invited to come and to have their say. Admission
is free for the presentation, but a contribution to aid the LBC is
suggested. If you have questions, contact the LBC /Anarchist Forum,

"The Money of the Future"

United Transnational Republics

A Lecture in Munich, Dec. 15, 2005

While the US-dollar is very well suited to promote US national
interests, the creation of a transnational currency is indispensable in
order to protect transnational citizen interests (protection of the
environment, human rights ...).

After last weeks lecture in Münster, the United Transnational Republics
are invited to present this Thursday, December 15th, a lecture in Munich as
a part of the series of lectures "The money of the future".

Steve Kurtz Talk - "Art and Discipline"

What: Presentation / Discussion

Where: 16 Beaver Street, 4th floor (directions below)

When: Monday Night 12.12.05 @ 7:30 Pm

Who: Open To All

Our short introductions to events sometimes aspire to a provocation for the evening. How is that we have come so far and seemingly done so little to stop it? How is that we are being disciplined to accept this state of endless war? How is it that so much is being done and yet the same tune plays on? War abroad and war at home. Civil Liberties, "human" rights, open
debate, OUT! Torture, abduction, abuse, expulsion, unabashed lies and untold casualties - the stuff of everyday news. Case by case, step by step, it is difficult to tell whether this war without end is reaching its end or sinking into our guts. All be it the language is dramatic, the reality is far more outrageous and devastating.

We are in a state of emergency, a state of exception. What are the implications of this on our activities?

Since the beginning of the case that unfolded against CAE's Steve Kurtz, 16Beaver has attempted to give space to both the intellectual concerns in CAE's work (including the program we organized with CAVS at MIT) and formal
and informal discussions we have held about the situation at our own space.

This Monday, we are happy to invite you to a discussion with Steve Kurtz of CAE. We will begin the evening with a presentation, 'Art and Discipline.' In this lecture Steve will discuss the many forms of disciplinary
authority that Critical Art Ensemble has encountered over the years, as well as how and why these situations came about. We will follow up this talk with a discussion.

Anarchisms Research Group

New York City, Dec. 2, 2005


Where: THE SOCIOLOGY LOUNGE, Room 6112 on the sixth floor of the CUNY
Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street, NYC. (Directions
and maps available: here).

Throughout its history anarchism as a theory and a socio-political
movement has gone through periodic peaks and troughs in popularity
and notoriety. Over the past ten years anarchism has again been on
the rise.

CUNY students call for the formation of a new student group to pursue
interests in anarchist thought, and to advance its legitimacy in the
academy. The new student group, which is applying for incorporation
by the Doctoral Student Council at the Graduate Center, has three
proposed aims:

1. To promote the analysis of the history, plurality, and
trajectory of anarchism as a theory and practice.

2. To facilitate the development of anarchist research and theory
at CUNY and in the academy at large.

3. And to promote the study and teaching of anarchism within CUNY
and the academy at large.

We will have our first meeting to discuss the mission, projects, and
organization of the new student group (to be named "The Anarchisms
Research Group") on Friday, 2 December 2005 at 5 PM in the Sociology
Lounge, located in room 6112, on the sixth floor of the CUNY Graduate
Center, 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street, NYC. You must have photo
I.D. to enter the building if you are not a CUNY Grad Center student.

We invite students from various disciplines, backgrounds, political
practice and struggles, and CUNY campuses to join our first meeting.
Please bring ideas, proposals for projects, and your enthusiasm.
Vegetarian pizza will be served at the meeting!

For more information, please contact Yvonne Liu at YLiu5@gc.cuny.edu.
