This month on Live Culture! This month of Live Culture- an interview with Gallerist Jeff Bergman about his ongoing Learn-As-Protest project which has people reading out loud to each other at Trump Tower. Popular with artists and writers this protest has a wide roster of participants and texts and adapts itself as current events unfold. We discuss creative forms of peaceful resistance, share stories about reading in the tower and discuss why even carrying a book into the building is a powerful act. Jeff has been leading this event weekly since 2016 and has been featured in the Guardian, the New Yorker and The New York Times to name some of the press this action has garnered.
