Concomitantly, he explained how, John Ruskin gave the name ‘Looking Down from Ingleborough’ to the first issue of Fors Clavigera, the series of letters addressed to ‘the workmen and labourers of Great Britain’, which also was intended to support the work of the Guild of St. George, the utopian society Ruskin, then 50 years old, founded at the same time. &nbsp;</p> <P></p><p><a href="http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/workshop-2-charlie-gere-ruskinian-experimentalism-or-historical-roots-experimental-art" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality/blog/workshop-2-charlie-gere-ruskinian-experimentalism-or-historical-roots-experimental-art#comments art change collective experimentation politcs social movements workshop 2 Mon, 23 Nov 2009 20:58:30 +0000 Diana 169 at http://www.lancs.ac.uk/experimentality
