More Than Fashion: The Political Context Of Revolutionary Struggle
with Christina Gerhardt
Lucy Parsons Center
Tuesday, April 29th, 2008
time: 7 PM
In the 1970s, numerous armed struggle groups in West Germany rose up.
While a spate of new films, art exhibits and books have revisited the
era in light of the 40th anniversary of the 1968 student
demonstrations in Berlin and the 30th anniversary of the "German
Autumn" of 1977, its explorations of the groups and their politics
tend to eclipse a thorough exploration of international and domestic
political struggles. Christina Gerhardt will present some of the era's
groups, such as the Red Army Faction, the June 2 Movement, the
Revolutionary Cells and the Red Zora, contextualizing their critiques
and actions in the international and domestic events of the time.
The Lucy Parsons Center is located at 549 Columbus Ave in Boston's
South End. Easily accessible by bike, bus (#1), and T (Mass Ave or
