A photo exhibition of the Italian hardcore punk scene at C-Squat

Over the next few days, you can check out photography documenting the 1980s and 1990s Italian hardcore punk scene at the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space/C-Squat on Avenue C.

Here's more about "Collezione di Attimi: A Photography Exhibition, Tribute, and Book Presentation" via the EVG inbox...
This photo show was initially set up in Berlin back in June. It debuted in New York as part of the Anarchist Bookfair, and after this weekend, it will be shipped back to travel across Italy. 

The photo selection is based on the 370-page Negazione photo book by DeeMo. It primarily focuses on the community surrounding the band Negazione, but there are also photos of other iconic Italian hardcore punk bands like Raw Power, Wretched, Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers, and Bedboys. 
Show curator and former Negazione band member Michele Barox will be doing a discussion on Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 1:30 and 6:15 p.m.

Photo exhibit gallery hours: 
  • Thursday: 5-7 p.m.
  • Friday: 4-6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: Noon-7 p.m.
  • Sunday: Noon-3:30 p.m. 
You can access the free show via MoRUS, 155 Avenue C between Ninth Street and 10th Street.

While MORUS and friends were selling "anarchist" books and talking about Anarchy in La Plaza picnic zone a large gang of Proud Boys and Trumpers took over a city block in midtown at Trump Tower and held a big rally and Curtis Sliwa and his followers threatened and attacked refugees on Staten Island. MORUS is having a show of Italian Punk bands at See Squat this weekend. All this is pretty sad but MORUS has a 501C3 and can't advocate squatting or Anarchistic activism and the only protests they have been part of that I know of were Save Charas rallies which got no where not reclaiming urban space. I get it they need those Google [now under investigation for federal violations] and local Democratic politicians money.
