CULTURAL WEAPON (article first published : 2001-02-18)

Well-known arts activist, Mike van Graan once made waves in arts and culture circles with his publication The Cultural Weapon which had to be curtailed because of lack of funding. However, The Cultural Weapon is back but this time with a far wider audience as it will appear on the national online arts site, Artslink, at www.artslink.co.za

Comments from van Graan himself are: "Once a common "communist". Now a reluctant "racist". Always, hopefully, an intellectual terrorist. Armed with independent thought. A reckless heart. A ready pen. To discomfort the mighty with irony. To ambush the corrupt with the light of day. To engage in battle with the warmongers who ravish arts and culture and then parade the speared spoils as victories to their hand-clapping, burping, ignorant leaders."

The Cultural Weapon is uncensored and available via ACEmail. Subscribe now at http://www.at.artslink.co.za/ace for your weekly dose of independent thought from the Scarlet Pimpernel of the arts world.
