Brecht Forum Archive

From 1975 to May, 2014, the BRECHT FORUM was a place for people working for social justice, equality and a new culture that puts human needs first. Through its programs and events, the Brecht Forum brought people together across social and cultural boundaries and artistic and academic disciplines to promote critical analysis, creative thinking, collaborative projects and networking in an independent community-level environment.

Throughout the year, the Brecht Forum offered a wide-ranging program of classes, public lectures and seminars, art exhibitions, performances, popular education workshops, and language classes. These activities were developed in collaboration with the many social movements and the diverse communities of this most cosmopolitan of cities, and our programs brought together leading intellectuals, activists and artists from New York, across the U.S., and internationally.
