    Oregon Institute for Creative Research's Readings for Now — Theodor Adorno

    Join us for a close reading and discussion of Adorno’s “Opinion Delusion Society.”

    The Kitchen, Yale Union
    Tuesday, October 3, 2017, 7:00 p.m.

    Read the essay at oicr-e4.org. Dessert served.

    “But the risk of exposure in a radioactively contaminated world has grown so great that the anxiety is belatedly honored by the same faculty of reason that eschews its psychotic character. The objective world is approaching the image persecution mania renders of it. The concept of persecution mania and pathological opinion as a whole are not spared the same tendency. Anyone who nowadays hopes to comprehend the pathogenic element of reality with the traditional categories of human understanding falls into the same irrationality he imagines himself to be protected from by his loyal adherence to healthy common sense.”

    Liberation Literacy Screening of "Attica"

    Liberation Literacy is hosting a screening of Attica on the 46th anniversary of the prison uprising. Liberation Literacy is a social justice reading group comprised of nearly twenty inside/outside students who read a common set of books and meet weekly Columbia River Correctional Instution in N Portland. This fall, we published our first quarterly newletter. More information about the group can be found here: http://liberationliteracy.weebly.com/

    Admission to the screening is free, and donations will go toward printing costs for the Liberation Literacy newsletter.

    Directed by Cindy Firestone in 1974, Attica "pieces together documentary footage of the occupation and the ensuing assault with video from the McKay Commission hearings that criticized Governor Nelson Rockefeller’s handling of the incident and firsthand interviews with prisoners discharged after the event."

    The ATTICA print is courtesy of the Reserve Film and Video Collection of the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts.The film screening is sponsored by Yale Union and Cinema Project, and would not have been possible without an arts equity grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council. Seating is limited to 50 people. Please come early.
