Screening of “To Hell With Culture”: The Life & Work of Sir Herbert Read
Friday October 20th
Doors & drinks 6.30pm; Film starts 7pm
Unfortunately, Ruth Kinna is unwell and so we're having to reschedule her talk, "Anarchism and its Lessons for Now". Please accept our apologies.
At Ruth's suggestion, we will instead be screening "To Hell With Culture" (director Huw Wahl, 2014, 56mins) about the life and work of Sir Herbert Read.
Herbert Read, (1893-1968), was an influential art critic, poet and anarchist. In his 1943 essay, "To Hell With Culture", Read laid out his ideas for a civilisation based on cooperation in which culture would no longer be a commodity, separated from society, but an integral part of everyday life.
The screening will be followed by supper and discussion.
We will set another date for Ruth's talk once she's recovered. If you've already bought a ticket we will be writing to you individually to offer a refund or exchange. Any issues please email events@Kairos.London
Kairos, 84 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 4TG
Doors open at 6.30pm for drinks. The film will start at 7pm followed by a one-pot vegan supper and discussion.
£8 members, £15 non-members. Includes food.
