Together We Can Defeat Capitalism and e://MISSION participate in the gift
economy by hosting gratis low tea at the Guerrilla Tea Room. Anyone who
visits during this month- long event will be served free tea and cake. "Let
them eat cake," said Marie Antoinette- and now they really will!
The "Guerrilla Tea Room" functions as an act of generosity in a City (and
age) of self-interest. A Mad Hatter's Tea Party with an anti-capitalist
twist, the Guerrilla Tea Room reinvents the English upper class tea ritual
in the spirit of Food Not Bombs. Tea Room patrons will enjoy free tea and
cake, gaze into the looking glass, contemplate the rabbit hole and brew
sedition against the consumerist status quo. This community and media event
will feature collaborations with Amy Berk, Eugene Marsh, Megan Wilson - Sign Painter; Nick Foy - Baker;
the e://MISSION crew and others.
e://MISSION is a new project space presenting work by artists, curators and
critical theorists that forms new hybrid combinations between traditional
disciplines and emerging cultures. Located in San Francisco's Mission
District, e://MISSION displaces perceived conceptual parameters by forging
dynamic interactions between cultural producers and their audience/market.
