IMAG-E-NATION the political & philosophical arts initiative blog

(re)imagining the political and philosophical in the 21st century

The Political & Philosophical Arts Initiative is interested in the ways in which people interact with and compose political and philosophical ideas and actions through the various, diverse media of technology and the arts. Participants in PAI seek to explore the ways in which poetry, literature, music, photography, performance and other creative arts interleave with the political and philosophical life, either as vehicles for criticism, elaboration, theorization, intervention or activism.
The Imag-e-nation blog is a forum for interested parties to share stories, images or other contributions. Contributors range from students and faculty to artists and musicians to professional and casual commentators. Pieces can be short opinions, re-postings of appropriate materials, or original compositions. In addition, the PAI at LUC will make a selection of relevant or provocative news items each week for (re)publication here.


Political Arts Manifesto Launch

As part of the celebrations of the opening of Leiden University's new academy building on the Schouwburgstraat in The Hague, the PAI will launch the first version of its manifesto.

Because PAI is fortunate enough to be sponsored by LEGO for its second issue of the +HIP magazine, those of you who make it to the event at 15.00-16.00 on 20 September in the main auditorium of Schouwburgstraat 2 may find yourselves in for a LEGO-sized treat.

Join Chris Goto-Jones and Cissie Fu for the launch of the Political Arts Manifesto ... (and please register using this link (we're in round 3), which is helpfully in Dutch for our international community).

why aren't you at the launch?
