Political Art Month 2011!

No theme's been announced yet (not that anyone need feel bound to stick to one). For more on PAM, see my previous post.

My own suggestion for a theme is, Infowar as Class War. In particular, art has been and is being used to promote the interests and agendas of both rich and poor; and lately, the rich seem to be winning. Forget post-post-modernism; we seem to have entered post-reality. What to do? (More on the current infowar here.)

To get in the mood for PAM, see other artists' and art professionals' written responses to last year's PAM announcement here; they're funny as well as inspiring.

And let PAM's founder, Gene Elder, know what you're planning for PAM, at elder4tomato at yahoo dot com.
