Can art change politics, does politics determine art?
Eindhoven, Netherlands
A two day discussion seminar reflects on some of the issues
brought up in the exhibition Forms of Resistance. The seminar will introduce the exhibition and invite a number of artists, theorists and activists to discuss the political possibilities of the art field.

Some of the questions addressed include:
- What are possible relationships between art and political action?
- What role does aesthetics play in articulating the desire for social and political change?
- How can we interpret the political desires of previous artistic
generations today and how does it impact on our understanding of the history of art?

Speakers
Will Bradley, Marcelo Esposito, Charles Esche, Brian Holmes,
Gerald Raunig, What, How, For Whom?, and Marina Vishmidt.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
