" the worst thing you did to us was to make politicians out of all of us"

A haunting piece that articulates the thematic concerns of Memefest 2014, as the author concludes - " the worst thing you did to us was to make politicians out of all of us": http://indianexpress.com/…/book-review-kashmir-the-vajp…/99/

Memefest's Radical Intimacies, sneaks into a small town in rural NSW
3

In contemporary Australia the words ‘country’, ‘decolonisation’, ‘family’ and ‘law’ are loaded with meanings that differ greatly from person to person across this nation’s Aboriginal and migrant communities.

As part of Memefest's Radical Intimacies, a small group of us got together a few weeks ago and developed a work that explored this diversity while challenging our understanding of ourselves and others through a poster series and four-part publication.

We posted these around Melbourne a few weeks ago, but most recently they've surfaced in a small town called Kandos on Wiradjuri Country in rural NSW. They're on the shop front windows of Kandos Projects, which hosts a biennial arts festival every two years and where I am currently staying (http://cementa.com.au/).

The posters are causing many heads to turn and spurring curiosity and conversation in this sleepy but complex post-industrial town that, like many others, works hard to forget the violent history of its foundation!
