Left Equals Pleasure

The Goddess of Love is not normally associated with migrant advocacy. However, there is no mistaking the meaning created by the tandem placement of these two event flyers. Posted to a municipal billboard on the left side of Turin’s Askatasuna squat (an occupied house, or a social center, as they are referred to in Italy) the message is clear. Demonstrate on behalf of the legalization of foreign immigrants (“Documenti Per Tutti/e” or  “Papers for All”) states the flyer on the left, in front of the city’s main train station. Go to the Aphrodite gig at Askatasuna the following week, advertised by the flyer on the right, featuring the Greek deity herself. Headphones and shades included.
