John Jordan

Profile

John Jordan’s work merges the imagination of art and the social engagement of politics.

Co-director of social practice group Platform (1987-1995) he then went on to be a co-founder of Reclaim the Streets and most recently the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army.
 
With the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination he is currently searching for lifeboats that will take us out of the impending global ecological collapse. Supported by a roaming bursary, “Paths Through Utopias” will take the Lab on a seven-month journey through Utopian communities and will result in a road movie, a publication, a blog and series of performance workshops merging art, life and collective survival skills.
