Paper Jam 2 Exhibitor #25: Sessa Englund
Last, but certainly not least, the Paper Jam curation committee would like to recognize the many talents of Sessa Englund. She embodies many worlds of art as both an accomplished graphic designer and painter. She has curated many successful shows including Problematic at Brooklyn Fireproof, and she has co-organized many important social and political panel discussions on behalf of Arts in Bushwick. Her work deals with transforming anxious personal moments into commercially viable products. The results are mesmerizing compositions of layered meaning. We hope you enjoy meeting her and all the rest of the artists tabling this Saturday!!

"Socialists tend to argue that "capitalism necessarily leads to unfair and exploitative concentrations of wealth and power in the hands of the relative few who emerge victorious from free-market competition—people who then use their wealth and power to reinforce their dominance in society. Because such people are rich, they may choose where and how to live, and their choices in turn limit the options of the poor."
From the socialist perspective, freedom is conceived of as a concrete situation as opposed to a purely abstract or moral concept, and is closely related to human creativity and the importance socialists ascribe to creative freedom. Socialists view creativity as an essential aspect of human nature, and define freedom as a state of being where individuals are able to express their creativity unhindered by constraints of both material scarcity and coercive social institutions.”
Anonymous said: how do you feel about racist and misogynist people? do you identify as a feminist ?
Racist and misogynist people are products of an industrial factory which has created ideologies, roles, and instructions for the consumption of a society which feeds upon the blood of those subordinate. To not identify as feminist would be to participate in the monstrous atrocities of this factory.
Your art is worthless to me if you are not a feminist, and if you don’t care about class issues, or race issues, that’s where I’m at now. I’m not saying the work has to be social or political in nature, I’m just the type of person that mostly sees the work of people I know, and with the internet posts around the Isla Vista Killings, Ferguson, etc, it’s become pretty easy to spot who is worth any of my thought or focus.
