Learning in a public medium:

'If someone can stand up in front of an audience and say it, then they should say it...'

Saturday 13th May

'If someone can stand up in front of an audience and say it, then they should say it...':

Stuart Marshall- alternative medicine, ethics and the archive from the women's health movement and AIDS activism to the present.


A screening, reading and performance event with Conal McStravick, Fiona Anderson, students of Newcastle University Fine Art Department and live audience members.

This live research event will re-stage the materials shared and developed through workshops at Newcastle University followed by a discussion on the ethical and political potential of this material. As well as the works of Stuart Marshall (1949-1993), Kathy Acker (1947-1997), Audrey Lorde (1934-1992), Marlon T. Riggs (1957-1994), and Jo Spence(1934-1992), this workshop echoes Pedagogue the 1988 collaboration between Stuart Marshall and Neil Bartlett that took a collaboration between Marshall, Bartlett and students at Newcastle Polytechnic as the basis of a cultural activist repsonse to Section 28. As a work this addresses the hierarchies and agencies of the pedagogical siuation as much as it explores the intersection of feminist, LGBT+ and HIV/AIDS activism(s) to stage interdisciplinary strategies for producing and sharing knowledge as a critique of power.


Learning in a Public Medium is a research project initiated by artist Conal McStravick to bring together artists, non-artists and researchers to build new and developing forms and strategies into the works and legacies of artist, activist, arts organiser, educator and writer Stuart Marshall (1949-1993). Following screenings, workshops and research events at Hospitalfield, AMIF, Glasgow, and Wysing Arts Centre in 2015; BIMI Essay Film Festival and Concordia University, Montreal in 2016; this latest series of workshops and events at MAC, Belfast and The Northern Charter, Newcastle in Spring and Autumn 2017 will contribute material to a new performative outcome at The Showroom, London later this year.
