ROSA REMIX
Book Launch and Reception - September 8, 2016 - NYC

On Thursday, September 8, the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office invites you to join us, from 6-8pm, to celebrate the release of Rosa Remix, a collection that examines Rosa Luxemburg and the relevance of her work to contemporary political struggles.

Last fall our office held a conference to which we invited a mixture of academics, journalists, and activists to discuss Rosa Luxemburg’s theoretical work and how it may contribute to current discussions taking place on the Left. The contributions of our invited speakers were so good that we decided to turn them into a book. Rosa Remix is the result.

With seven sections and sixteen chapters, Rosa Remix covers a wide range of subjects, starting with Rosa’s life, finishing with her legacy, and in between grappling with issues like climate justice and other current social movements, war and peace, and feminism. The book also includes drawings from a recent graphic biography of Rosa Luxemburg’s life, plus contributions from its editor and artist/author.

Like all of our materials, Rosa Remix is available for free. Come by our office between 6-8pm on Thursday, September 8, to grab your copy and chat with some of the authors. We look forward to seeing you and sharing our work!
