Dissenters and Dreamers at Centrala, a new multifunctional space in Minerva Works run by PEA, it’s a gallery, café and venue with a particular focus on Central and Eastern European culture. Centrala Space presents an Exhibition of Anti Authoritarian Protest Art and Music from the East and West. This particular exhibition is a selection of Punk protest art and documents produced before the fall of the Iron Curtain from the East and West, including works by Gee Vaucher and Oscar Kasperek. Gee Vaucher’s iconic imagery made with Anarcho-punk band Crass was inspirational to the ‘protest art’ of the 1980s and still resonates today. From the same period but on the other side of Europe Oscar Kasperek’s work was equally provocative.
Gee will be in conversation with Nic Bullen, founding member of Napalm Death as part of Digbeth Delights on Sunday 14 June.
