Anarchism in history
The Haymarket affair (also known as the Haymarket massacre or Haymarket riot) was the aftermath of a bombing that took place at a labor demonstration on Tuesday May 4, 1886, at Haymarket Square in Chicago. It began as a peaceful rally in support of workers strikingfor an eight-hour day and in reaction to the killing of several workers the previous day by the police. An unknown person threw a dynamite bomb at police as they acted to disperse the public meeting. The bomb blast and ensuing gunfire resulted in the deaths of seven police officers and at least four civilians; scores of others were wounded.
In the internationally publicized legal proceedings that followed, eight anarchists were convicted of conspiracy. The evidence was that one of the defendants may have built the bomb, but none of those on trial had thrown it.
The Kronstadt rebellion was a major unsuccessful uprising against the Bolsheviks in March 1921, during the later years of the Russian Civil War. Led by Stepan Petrichenko and consisting of Russian sailors, soldiers, and civilians, the rebellion was one of the reasons for Vladimir Lenin's and the Communist Party's decision to loosen its control of the Russian economy by implementing the New Economic Policy (NEP).
The Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT; "National Confederation of Labour") is a Spanish confederationof anarcho-syndicalist labour unionswhich was long affiliated with the International Workers Association (IWA; Spanish: AIT – Asociación Internacional de los Trabajadores). When working with the latter group it was also known as CNT-AIT. Historically, the CNT has also been affiliated with the Federación Anarquista Ibérica (Iberian Anarchist Federation – FAI). In this capacity it was referred to as the CNT-FAI. Throughout its history, it has played a major role in the Spanish labor movement.
The Iberian Anarchist Federation is a Spanish organization of anarchist (anarcho-syndicalist and anarchist-communist) militants active within affinity groups inside the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo(CNT) anarcho-syndicalist union. It is often abbreviated as CNT-FAI because of the close relationship between the two organizations.

I would like to really dig into the history or any sort of materials behind the words and collect all kinds of signs, pictures art works to reflect the events and information.
I think it's a good thing to collect true materials from the real events in history and use as part of your final work. In a exhibition and display, the audience are from all the countries, having grown up in different cultures. Although these materials may seem strange to them but it is also the most striking way to convey your idea and 'force' the audience tn face the true history. This is what a exhibition or just one piece of art work related to true history may. do or one of its 'responsibility'.
Auroville (City of Dawn) is an experimental township in Viluppuram district mostly in the state of Tamil Nadu, India with some parts in the Union Territory of Puducherry in South India. It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Alfassa (known as "the Mother") and designed by architect Roger Anger.
Christiania, also known as Freetown Christiania (Danish: Fristaden Christiania[needs IPA] or Staden), is a self-proclaimed autonomous anarchistdistrict of about 850 to 1,000 residents, covering 34 hectares (84 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danishcapital city of Copenhagen. It was temporarily closed by residents in April 2011 while discussions continued with the Danish government about its future, but then re-opened to the public.
Those societies of anarchism have some construction, city scenes and other features which can be used in the work.
a picture taken me about the corner in my bedroom
I really like the color and the lines of those construction make of concrete. It gives a futuristic feeling but it's just plain.
wire ---- the possibilities and the changing world, different directions and different possible versions of the future
whole structure ---- with a beginning of the current world and ending points .
use these little pieces to symbolize the individuals in the changing chaotic world.
maybe try other materials like wax ( melting it like people getting lost )
The ball shape may be used to build an object with other materials inside to represent of the stage of the anarchism possibility if it really happen in the future.
