172 Allen Street (between Stanton and Rivington)
New York City, New York

Video showing of excerpts from Ron English's "Popaganda," the "Yes Men" Film and Scott Beale's "You'd Better Watch Out" documenting the Cacophony Society's wild "Santarchy" escapade in Portland. (For the past ten years, groups of folks dressed up as Santa Claus have invaded department stores, hotel parties and other events, causing ideological havoc and consumer confusion--anarchic fun! Over the years, the Santas have spread to major cities over the planet.)

Far more than a video show, the Feb 1 evening will encompass a Panel (taking audience Q&A's) with local New York artists who appear in RE/Search's newest book, PRANKS 2: Ron English, Julia Solis, the YES MEN (tentative) and JOHN LAW from San Francisco. All interested in RE/Search's 30 year history, pranks, and cultural subversion in general are urged to attend and meet-and-greet featured pranksters both before and after the show. This is a rare opportunity to engage with prankster pioneers, while supporting the counterculture RE/Search publishing enterprise.
