 Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme: excerpts from The Incidental Insurgents, 2012-2013  

The Part about The Bandits 

PT.1

We are believing and dis-believing

We are in the midst of the not yet material

or perhaps the already determined

inhabiting a time of radical potentiality and its collapse

In search of a new political language

in need of this

always on the verge

always becoming and yet …

The Incidental Insurgents: The Part about The Bandits is a search that begins with three seemingly disparate coordinates: the early anarchist life of Victor Serge and his contemporary bandits in Paris in the 1910s; Abu Jilda and Armeet’s gang of bandits involved in a rebellion against the British in 1930s Palestine, and the artist as the quintessential bandit in Roberto Bolaño’s novel The Savage Detectives, set in 1970s Mexico. The first part of the story looks at the resonances between the inspiring, bizarre and sometimes tragic stories of these diverse bandits, outsider rebels par excellence. Intended as an investigation into the possibilities for the future rather than the past, and using literary and factual texts as starting points, a convoluted detective story situated in multiple times starts to emerge. Initiating a journey where the artists try to figure out how we, like the bandits before us, find ourselves inhabiting a moment full of radical potential and disillusionment, in a continual search for a language of the moment.

The American Cultures Center at UC Berkeley recently commissioned a poster to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the American Cultures requirement. As part of the process of developing the piece I interviewed students, staff and faculty about the role the students have the opportunity to play, in serving their communities through an engaged praxis, via the American Cultures classes. Their history is rooted in the Campaign Against Apartheid, a movement of “students, staff, faculty, and community members demanding that UC divest its portfolio of multiple billions of dollars in investments tied to apartheid South Africa.” #acrequirement #dignidadrebelde #poster #antiapartheid #divest #ucberkeley

King Of Jeans is closed. The building is to be torn down. The sign is a South Philly landmark. The locals want it saved but no new home or solution has presented itself yet. Stay tuned. Stay hopeful.

Patson Muzuwa plans his day in Leicester. 2013. 
Patson Muzuwa’s phone is constantly ringing, for him helping other Zimbabweans seek refuge is his life. Patson also helps run a fortnightly drop-in centre for Zimabwean Asylum seekers, to which other people of many nationalities are welcomed to attend. Those of whom are often Congolese, Zambian, Malawian and even North Korean. Patson was himself once an Asylum Seeker, escaping direct violence, torture and death threats in Zimbabwe due to his political ties with the MDC. Yet after being detained for 3 months on his arrival, and years of battling with the UKBA he was granted Indefinite leave to remain, which meant that he can now live and work in the UK as a refugee.
