Cage Silence

Given that it’s that back-to-school time of year, the Bureau would like to host some classes. These might take the form of a single evening or perhaps two or three sessions. Please send us proposals at contact@bgsqd.com.

To get the ball rolling, Greg Newton, the Bureau’s Minister of Propaganda, will offer a class that will meet once with the option to continue indefinitely. The class, Queer Silences, will explore the subject of silence from queer perspectives. The first and possibly only class will take place on Wednesday, September 18th, from 7 to 9. In advance of the class, participants will read Jonathan D. Katz’s essay “John Cage’s Queer Silence: Or How to Avoid Making Matter’s Worse” and Caroline A. Jones’s “Finishing School: John Cage and the Abstract Expressionist Ego.” Greg will send PDFs of the essays to all who RSVP to contact@bgsqd.com.
