Wounded Galaxies

The conference, festival, and symposium called Wounded Galaxies 1968 intersects with Bloomington’s orbit next month. The event looks at the tumultuous year 1968, which included the Chicago protests and riots during the Democratic National Convention. (Pictured here is an anit-war march prior to the convention in 1968.) Wounded Galaxies organizer Joan Hawkins says the event will be more than a museum piece: “We want to confront the whole concept of revolutionary aesthetics, and ask, ‘Where do we go from here?’” | Photo by David Wilson, Creative Commons
