Two new titles we'll have at the @sfartbookfair, this weekend July 22-24 at @minnesotastreetproject: Selected by @luminousbooks: STRIKE! Anthology gathers the first 8 issues of STRIKE! in one place, detailing the printed publication from it's inception in 2012 to the end of 2014. STRIKE! Magazine never speaks from one perspective, but is a platform for those involved in grassroots resistance, anti-oppression politics, and the philosophies surrounding these movements. We prioritise the voices of people directly affected by oppressive structures, those on the front lines of political change. STRIKE! presents radical politics and philosophy using accessible language, supported by engaging design and powerful imagery. Bad Feelings, Arts Against Cuts, 2015, @bookworksuk: Elude, remain uncomfortable, refuse when necessary, and NEVER SETTLE! Bad Feelings aims itself towards existing discussions on negation, negativity, and a bottomless catalogue of negative emotions. Assembled therein is a set of materials for conflict and commonality. Despite some clear thematic concerns and constellations around which the contributions coalesce – hate, struggle, rage, anger, revenge, resistance, destruction, and so on – it forgoes asserting any coherent narrative, manifesto, or position on the subjects. Authors, whether collective, individual, or transmutable identities, flow from start to finish in a sequence determined by their emotion and subject of contestation. The texts, the contributors, the ideas, the aesthetics, and the arguments disagree, and so do we. Ordered against order, Bad Feelings attempts to manifest an experimental negativity, pushing beyond a mimetic economy bound to the targets it seeks to oppose. It may not work as intended, though no more sleep will be lost over it. #owlcave #luminousbooks #strikemagazine #artsagainstcuts #bookworksuk #sfabf2016
