Matt Hern: Sports, Creativity and the Radical Imagination

Resource type
Date created
Often derided as a subaltern opiate, sports need to be understood as containing huge social and cultural power. Matt Hern argues for a vastly expanded definition of creativity that includes sports for sure, but also all kinds of everyday and common activities. Radical social change relies on our imaginations, and we need to be nurturing every kind of creative activity, especially material collisions, as we make and remake the world around us.
