We Get Restless
This was an exhibition of work centred on anti-capitalist activism. By timing it to coincide with the eve of the May Day activities organised in London, it became an example of an art exhibition which was organised not simply as an opportunity to market the art, but rather as an attempt to develop a broader cultural aspect to the anti-capitalist protest movement.
This was evinced by the relocation of the Indymedia, UK meeting to the location. Participants had to shout to make themselves heard over the DJing, disrupting the normal logocentric aesthetic of political meetings .
Also invited to contribute to the exhibition, was evoL PsychogeogrAphix , who commented that "being invited to art exhibitions make me feel like Gustav Metzger at the Fluxus Festival of Misfits even when I'm not invited to contribute. Then we get restless."
