The Brecht Forum is an independent Marxist educational and cultural center in Brooklyn, New York, named after German writer Bertolt Brecht. Throughout the years, the Forum has offered a wide-ranging program of classes, public lectures and seminars, art exhibitions, performances, popular education workshops, and language classes.
The Brecht Forum was founded in 1975, as the New York Marxist School by a collective of civil rights, community, labor, and student activists. In 2004, it moved to Westbeth, 451 West St., New York, NY, formerly Serge’s Gym. Now in Brooklyn at 338 Atlantic Avenue, the forum hosts many events each year, including Theater of the Oppressed Laboratory, the Institute for Popular Education, and Neues Kabarett series.
At the Brecht Forum, people communicate, meet, and display their art.
