Event description

Description

Ever since Woody Guthrie painted 'this machine kills fascists' on his guitar or Jacques-Louis David painted Marat Dead in the Bath, politics and art have been bedfellows. Not always an easy union but in the 1970s Sydney art and politics joined each other on the barricades. Obviously the Tin Sheds collective was there to help get the word out and the word was often sung on stages from the Sheds themselves to the Cell Block theatre. Rock artists like Cold Chisel and Midnight Oil were born in this alembic as were cabaret and theatrical performers such as Jeannie Lewis. But more than just political dogma, radical art leads to radical thought and action. "They make their own posters. They put on their own gigs. They do everything themselves. That's as radical to me as Brecht was to theatre." - Damian Lovelock
