Power Forward

To celebrate the launch of Sports, the newest issue of artist-run publication INCITE: Journal of Experimental Media, KADIST hosts an evening of athletics, politics, art, and dialogue. Sports editors Astria Suparak and Brett Kashmere, recent transplants to the Bay Area, tip off the program with an illustrated preview of the book, which surveys the intersections of sports, political discourse, popular culture, experimental media, and performance. Then we’ll shift gears to a discussion between Ezekiel Kweku, journalist and politics editor of New York Magazines Daily Intelligencer, and Ameer Loggins, writer, scholar, and an organizer for Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camps, which will likely touch on recent boycotts, the possibilities for activism, the realities and repercussions for athletes (both on and off-field), and writing about sports from a political perspective.
