Creative Placemaking with Patrick McCulley

The Union of Time Thieves: Creative Placemaking with Patrick McCulley

The Union of Time Thieves explores the idea of creative spacemaking with saxophonist Patrick McCulley. Creative spacemaking is a concept that applies to how people make space for art/music in their lives or how a physical creative space is made through performance.

Patrick recently released an EP entitled Fierce, and has this to say about the project:

The Ignatius J. Reilly Collage

Air date: 
Mon, 10/26/2015 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm
Short Description: 
The Union of Time Thieves: The Ignatius J. Reilly Collage
This month's transgression from the Union of Time Thieves is filled with audio acrobatics and John Kennedy Toole's most beloved curmudgeon, Ignatius J. Reilly.

While the book, The Confederacy of Dunces, isn't a strictly Situationist text, the societal condemnations of its antihero are provocative as we contrast this fictitious Medieval hesternopothia with Johan Huizinga's influence on the Situationists from his work The Waning of the Middle Ages — as depicted in a newly released, translated version of Guy Debord and Asger Jorn's Mémoires.

Join us for a delight of obsurity and obfuscation!

The Unconscious Civilization

Air date: 
Mon, 08/24/2015 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm
Short Description: 
The Union of Time Thieves: The Unconscious Civilization

The Union of Time Thieves brings you John Ralston Saul's 1995 lecture, entitled "The Unconscious Civilization." He argues that society is only superficially based on the individual and democracy. Increasingly it is conformist and corporatist, a society in which legitimacy lies with specialist or interest groups and decisions are made through constant negotiations between these groups.  The paradox of our situation is that knowledge has not made us conscious. Instead, we have sought refuge in a world of illusion where language is cut off from reality.

The Union of Time Thieves: The Correction of Educative Propaganda
In the great tradition of the Situationist International's method of detournement, The Union of Time Thieves brings you a collection of corrected material from the 1950's. Join us as we negate the orignal meaning of these media artifacts to create new, subversive messages. Listeners will not only experience the jamming of culture; they'll succumb to the unintended avant garde dronescapes of shortwave radio at the same time!

Ai Ferri Corti: At Daggers Drawn

Air date: 
Mon, 05/25/2015 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm
Short Description: 
The Union of Time Thieves: Ai Ferri Corti
Originally published in 1998 as Ai ferri corti con l’esistente, i suoi difensori e i suoi falsi critici, this text incorporates the Situationist idea of the Spectacle as the status quo that activists must consider when taking on the project of revolution. This critique of various forms of resistance in the age of globalization was translated by Jean Weir and first published in English as At Daggers Drawn. Join us for an hour of reading and music as The Union of Time Thieves explores stealing back time and space.
