Assembly Reading & Activity Group
Meeting #1 3/27/18 7:30 – 8:30 (future meetings tbd)
The Public School Los Angeles

After its first meeting at the Public School, the Assembly Reading And Activity Group will schedule subsequent monthly meetings at public amphitheaters and spaces throughout the city of Los Angeles. Beyond engaged readings of the text together, we’ll encourage the development of propositions to enact (metaphorically, or in actuality) elements of the book in public space. Knowing comes, by doing together.

Asshole Festival, A Self-Initiated Performance Festival and Celebration Of Antagonists
March 3rd 1- 3pm
On the sidewalk in front of Human Resources in LA’s Chinatown

To celebrate the release of An Antagonist’s Guide to The Assholes Of Los Angeles, the Llano Del Rio Collective will be hosting this celebration and self-initiated performance festival to take place on the street corner in front of Human Resources.We ask, if you can, bring an image of someone (you, your big mouth, that shit head who works with the Geo Group down the street, your buddy Stanky flipping off the Mayor, Bank of America, Donald Trump) being some kind of antagonist or douchebag somewhere (this is the “self-initiated performance festival” thing). Then bring it down to Human Resources and scotch tape it to the wall out front (we’ll bring the tape).At 2:00 Lisa Anne Auerbach, Jen Hofer, Janet Sarbanes, and Stephen Van Dyke will read some vitriol. Then we’ll drink prune juice.

A Celebration Declaration for An Other LA
In the LA River by Fletcher Drive
River Bridge. Rainbow. July 3, 2010.

We  (John Burtle, Katie Bachler, Robby Herbst) built a bridge in the river. We made a web by declaring how it is that we participate in building another LA. When we all crossed to the island we read:

Another LA is
Crossing this island
Envisioning what we don’t know
Barely perceptible
All around
Ready for the taking
Ready to share
Riot of species
Connection between you and I and we and us and they not reduced to barbarism but exploded by plenty and pleasure and trust and hard work and not going away and some pain and and and and and and and and
The sound of the freeway stalled river babbles
Bird dives
Floating plastic becomes flag
Tennis ball is baby rattle
Rattle is compost
Compost island
Island Los Angeles
