Radical Independent Book-fair
…supporting small press publishers and independent producers… …circulating radical reading materials and information…
Glasgow’s Radical Independent Book-fair project (RiB) has been running stalls and collaborating on events since its inception at Document 4 in 2006.
Envisaged as a long term project to assist others through the ideas of mutual aid and solidarity the RIB is helping to fill the gap left by the lack of alternative bookshops and independent events in Glasgow. As well as stocking various books, pamphlets, magazines, newspapers, dvd’s, cd’s, badges, cards, t-shirts and coffee from a number of publishers and presses in an eclectic mix; the project stalls also include a mini library of CD’s, DVD’s and news-sheets, book and badge swap boxes, and a multitude of free items.
Each evening there will be a short talk / discussion led event in the bookstall space.

the other side of HISTORY — part v
a new artwork by Euan Sutherland
The other side of HISTORY is an ongoing series of diptych works which take the form of ‘spot the difference’ pictures as a starting point and use these differences (or similarities) to comment on various ignored, forgotten, suppressed, unknown, revised or rarely discussed events in recent history.
OSH part v focusses on a report by IWW construction workers and whistle-blowers on the 2012 Olympic site in London – a damning indictment on working conditions, tame-cat unionism, blacklists, and corporate manslaughter.
Euan Sutherland is a visual artist living and working in Glasgow who works on various approaches to creating and exhibiting artwork which is socially and politically engaging. He is also a co-ordinator of Glasgow’s Radical Independent book-fair project (RIB) and a wobbly (a member of the IWW — the Industrial Workers of the World union).

Political Pop Night
Sat 30 October 2010 | 9.00 pm – 12.30 pm
In the city of Glasgow, where electronic music beats at its core, BERK! is a night which aims to redress the gender imbalance. Demanda and Janneke have made the decks spin like no washing machine ever did, cooking up some fat bass with a mixture of techno, house and dubstep, whilst knitting the disco beats together along with visuals courtesy of visual artist and designer Florence To. Since residing at the CCA Bar last year, BERK! continues to create a nostalgic yet fresh party atmosphere. Berk! has an open-door and open-deck policy, encouraging other girls to come up and spin a tune or few.
For Document 8 film festival BERK! will be featuring some specially produced, bespoke visuals from Flo To and special guest DJ Nasterlie (Monox, Numbers).

Readings from Document 8 PEN writing workshops
Born and brought up in Orkney Alison Miller has lived in Glasgow for many years. Her first novel, Demo, was set in Glasgow in the run up to the Iraq war. She is now working on her second, set in Orkney.
Tom Leonard is one of Scotland’s foremost poets and literary scholars, renowned for his vigorous engagement with language. Unashamedly political and often deeply personal, his poems are by turns angry, moving and spectacularly funny, but always relevant and necessary. A reading not to be missed by a true Glasgow favourite.
Tawona Sithole is a poet from Zimbabwe currently living in Glasgow, Scotland.
