Bill Di Paola and collective members from the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Spaces (MoRUS) will present selected videos and images from the squatting movement in the Lower East Side, including important period documentaries by Rik Little and Franck Goldberg from MWF.

The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) preserves the rich history of grassroots movements in New York City’s East Village and showcases the unique public spaces for which the neighborhood is renowned. It is located in the storefront of a historic building in the East Village, C-Squat.
