What’s next for AAF?
Since research has been the foundation and the initial inspiration for the formation of our group, we continue to engage in discussions and projects that incorporate various styles of research.
In the past we have created a zine with collective members, presented Anti-fascist workshops in partnership with Vermont College of Fine Arts, as well as supporting each other’s individual creative practices.
We have started a new initiative within the AAF collective known as the Broadcast Series. Artists Against Fascism Broadcast Series hosts panel discussions with leading artists, activists, scholars, and community builders on a variety of subjects under the larger topic of how art practice and creative intent can be utilized in anti-fascist resistance.
As artists, we seek to bring together the personal and the political, putting knowledge and subject matter in a social context. We believe that this negotiation of perspective is a crucial component to opposing the rise of fascism by cultivating a collective social consciousness that is research based, analytical, and fluent in thoughtful debate while also being empathetic and supportive of one another.
