Founded in the 1920′s as a security force for the Ku Klux Klan, The Black Legion were a white supremacist organisation, prevalent in the Midwest of the United States. By the mid-1930′s, they had accumulated 20,000 to 30,000 members, mainly lower-class Southern Protestant whites. They perpetrated violence predominantly against African Americans, who they felt had stolen their jobs while completely disregarding that they lacked any useful skills for said jobs. They also targeted Catholics, Jews, labor unions, farm cooperatives and fraternal groups.

On 12 May, 1936, the organisation kidnapped Charles A. Poole, a Works Progress Administration organiser. Poole, a French Catholic, had married a Protestant. They shot him dead and it was this murder that eventually led to their downfall. It is believed that they killed up to fifty people in Detroit alone.

Larry Carlson

On my blog posts on contemporary artists are few and far in between, especially those of digital artists, but American artist Larry Carlson is certainly one worth mentioning. Involving himself in not just collage painting and photography, but also animation, sound design, and a number of other medias. Having a formal artistic education, Carlson studied painting and video-art Cooper Union School of Art, however much of what he now focuses on is self-taught. His works are influenced heavily with surrealism. With bright and vivid colours, Carlson’s works truly reflect his psychedelic mind-frame. Positioning of subject matter - which he has either photographed or digitally drawn himself - and colour are, quite obviously, signatures of his work as he aims to bend the viewer’s perception.

Henri Cole on what it’s like to see his poetry illuminated by the artist Jenny Holzer:

Seeing my poems projected in this way, onto landscapes and buildings, I feel that the words leap out from a different zone, where they are observed as much as read. Language is more direct, open, unself-conscious, precise, and human. It doesn’t belong to me anymore but to the atmosphere, and this makes me happy.

Read more about Holzer’s nighttime poetry projections. 

both on peter coopers birthday and on the appointment of someone really terrifying for the secretary of education would like to say how thankful i am for both my public school education and the free education the cooper union gave me. in our education system only the rich can afford to study disciplines that involve critical thinking. only the rich can afford to focus their education on the questioning and communication of their own experience. 

free education and arts education are really fucking important and need protection.

Happy birthday to the prolific artist Palmer Hayden!!!
