1968–2018: 50 Years of Art and Culture in the Struggle of the Filipino People for National and Social Liberation

The year of 2018 marks the 50th year of the Filipino people’s struggle against imperialism, bureaucrat capitalism and feudalism. The past five decades had been a long and arduous journey, but the people’s determination to overcome all obstacles and difficulties has brought us to where we are now. To mark this achievement, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines International Office and the Linangan Art and Culture Network organize a cultural event entitled 1968-2018: Fifty Years Of Art And Culture In The Filipino People’s Struggle For National and Social Liberation on 29 December 2018. The event features artworks and performances that represent the creative means that revolutionary artists and cultural workers use to expose and oppose exploitation and oppression, depict the heroic struggle of the masses, and propagate the revolutionary program and aspirations of the national democratic movement. The exhibition is open from 10.00 hrs. Video showings and a lecture discussion are held in the afternoon and the evening program caps the event.

The event is held at 13a Pauwstraat, 3512TG, Utrecht. The event is organized by the National Democratic Front of the Philippines International Office and the Linangan Art and Culture Network, and is hosted by BAK, basis voor actuele kunst.
