An unrehearsed conversation with Dutch-American philosopher, journalist, and activist Simon(e) van Saarloos and Matthew Stadler, the editor of ArtsEverywhere’s Polity of Literature series. This live event on Zoom marks the launch of Simon(e) van Saarloos’s newest book, Take ‘Em Down, a critical investigation of common tactics of historic memorialization, which poses the question What if we could commemorate everything and everyone, all at the same time? This live conversation will also introduce and explore Stadler’s newest iteration of the Polity of Literature series—a publishing platform called “The GOAT PoL” that will connect disenfranchised writers (those who are stateless, incarcerated, or children) to readers, publication, and agency inside of a living “polity of literature.”
