Public Artist Talk - Halley Murray ('08)

Alumni Halley Murray('08) will be giving a public artist talk on Friday, November 21 at 11:30a in Hardie Room 307, 23 Essex Street.

Murray will discuss life since graduation having lived in Berlin, Germany for the past five years. Moving there first to participate in an artist residence, she has since decided to stick around, acquired a visa, co-founded and organizes the annual Zine Fest Berlin, published many zines, and has recently released a book. Inspired by Edward Snowden and the action to be taken to stop the surveillance crisis, the book is a compilation of zine articles and collages addressing such topics as democracy, press, the Endless War, sustainability, consent, art and action.This book and other zines will be available during this lunchtime session. Come and she'll be happy to address any questions about Berlin life, organizing, and self-publishing.
