Sep 6 @ 6:00 pm – Dec 31 @ 8:00 pm

The Pacifist Library is forming and will arrive in New York in September 2012. We need your pacifist books!

The library is running a BOOK DONATION CAMPAIGN: You can contribute to us a classic pacifist text, a handbook for non-violent resistance, or any book of your choice that reflects your vision on Pacifism. The book could be a selection of poetry, a beloved novel, a book of theology, or a philosophical tome. Your interpretation of Pacifism is at the heart of this project and by making a donation, your book works towards collectively defining the identity of The Pacifist Library.

Please send your book to Flux Factory c/o Douglas Paulson 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101, or you can drop it off in person. If you would really like to donate a book but don’t currently have it in your collection (or you don’t want to part with your treasured copy) you can buy a (preferable used) copy of the book on Amazon by visiting our wish list, or by making a monetary donation on paypal which will be used toward the purchase of a book.

In appreciation, the book that you donate, or the one purchased with your monetary donation, will contain your name on the inside cover.

Join us for Flux Thursday, our monthly potluck dinner and art salon! Dinner starts at 8 in the kitchen, and then around 9:30 we’ll head to the gallery for artist presentations.

Flux’s Residency Unlimited artist Sonya Schönberger will discuss her ongoing research project of interviewing World War II survivors living in New York City. Then, it’s an all Public Trust-related line-up: Valentina Curandi & Nathaniel Katz will present the Pacifist Library, to be followed by non-violent charades. Jo Q. Nelson will talk about Was, Is, Will Be, an installation at Dekalb Market in Brooklyn. Lastly, Heidi Neilson of SP Weather Station will present work on the topic of space exploration. This Flux Thursday was organized by our very own Georgia Muenster.
