Jazz är farligt – John Sinclair

Birger Jarlsgatan 32, Stockholm




The poet and activist John Sinclair (born October 2, 1941 in Flint, Michigan) went during the late 1960s from small town rocker and teenage dj to a cultural revolutionary, groundbreaking marijuana activist, radical leader and political prisoner. He graduated from the university after writing a thesis on William Burrough’s “The Naked Lunch” and in 1966-67, this jazz poet and underground journalist founded the Detroit Artists Workshop and was in the frontline of the Hippie Revolution as manager of the “avant-rock” band MC5 and organizer of countless free concerts, White Panther Party demonstrations and activist events.

John Sinclair will attend a conversation led by the visitors and moderator “Ika” Johannesson.

Ika is a Swedish journalist, publisher, program leader and author. She leads a conversation that will inspire us to how to do it ourselves and to continue to do it. From creating happenings to sneaky and screaming political impressions in music, literature to art in a blissful mix based on how John previously worked.
