Rehearsing Revolution by Authentic Boys opening at mac tonight / Next Generation Autumn Launch
“The only constant is change. This idea, put forward by the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus can be seen as an encouragement to take life in one’s own hands. Revolution means becoming active. Revolution means being informed, taking a position, forming an opinion and expressing it. Revolution means to change and to grow.” – Authentic Boys
Very excited about the opening of ‘Rehearsing Revolution’ this evening at mac birmingham. The exhibition is the culmination of a year-long process, which has involved the international collective ‘Authentic Boys’ working with young adults from across Brum. An incredible panoramic photograph is one of the results.
Alongside the opening there will be DJ sets, live dance and music performances from the young peoples’ groups mac and partners have been working with on their Next Generation programme.
The Authentic Boys will give a free talk on Sunday 5 October, 4pm in the Hexagon Theatre at mac (including a preview of the film made with teenagers in Nyon).
