Story Activism

October 3, 2016

The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home were invited to give a provocation at our 2015 Storytelling and Activism symposium. As a result they have produced the fascinating book ’4 Boys (for Beuys)’.

The Institute state “in the book the parents tell the children, about their first protest, and then they write it up, reinventing it, refiguring it and fictionalising it on the way, as much as they are able or willing to do given their age (14, 12, 7 and 16 months!). This is our radical family history storytelling.” the book develops on their provocation and includes commissioned essays from the family and artist/academic/activists. For more information visit
