Invisible Generation: Rants, Polemics and Critical Theory Against the Planetary Work Machine, by Jason Rodgers
“This is a book of ideas and images in which the images, mostly collages, include lots of ideas coming from an independent, ultra-left perspective. Rodgers developed these ideas and honed his photocopy collage techniques over decades with mail-art flyers. Now in finalized form, these documents provide readers outside of his mail-art network access to the goings-on of underground movements that were once mostly ‘invisible.’ Aspects of these movements, notably the resistance to work, have surfaced in recent years in surprising ways and to surprising degrees.” — Lenny B.
“Rodgers’ book explores too many topics to summarize here from Nick Land to Deleuze and Foucault — subcultural particularism and stick and paste posters. The book flows with scans of Jason’s famous flyers exploring the IWW, Foot Not Bombs and the drudgery of daily life. The more nuanced critical theory is balanced with harsh deductive rants that fiercely reject the modern world. A cool book that can be flipped through and engaged with easily.”...Read more about: Invisible Generation: Rants, Polemics and Critical Theory Against the Planetary Work Machine, by Jason Rodgers »

Dissemblage: Machinic Capitalism and Molecular Revolution
Following Dividuum (2015), Gerald Raunig presents the second volume of “Machinic Capitalism and Molecular Revolution.” Dissemblage unfolds a wild abundance of material of unruliness, from the multilingual translation machines of Al-Andalus to the queer mysticism of the High Middle Ages, from the small voices of the falsetto in 20th century jazz and soul to today’s disjointures and subjunctures against the smooth city in machinic capitalism.
In this volume Gerald Raunig not only develops a conceptual ecology of concepts of joining and jointing, but also undertakes an experiment in theoretical form. Semi-fictional interweaves with meticulously researched historical sources, mystical writings with letters from friends, philosophical fragments with poetic ritornellos. More than a narrative about dissemblages from social surrounds, thing-worlds, and ghost-worlds, the book itself is a dividual multiplicity in form and content, out of joint, in the joints, dissemblage.
Bio: Gerald Raunig is philosopher at the Zurich University of the Arts and co-editor of the multilingual publishing platform transversal texts....Read more about: Dissemblage: Machinic Capitalism and Molecular Revolution

Peter Lamborn Wilson with Tamas Panitz and others
“Speech acts” have always been an important part of Peter Lamborn Wilson’s practice as a writer. For many years he hosted a talk show on WBAI in New York City, spoke in public at the Open Center and the Anarchist Forum in New York, and lectured at Naropa’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics in Boulder.

Here are four “Conversazione” on subjects ranging from the philosophy of food (or gastrosophy, as Charles Fourier called it) to a discussion of the intentions and fates of many of his major books, moderated by poet Tamas Panitz. Poet and classicist Charles Stein and artist Phyllis Segura chime in.
“Welcome to THE LADY ANARCHIST CAFÉ, where ‘the occult and the everyday intermingle.’ It’s a phantasmic feminist space, where you can spot Dorothy from THE WIZARD OF OZ, Emma Goldman, the Bronte sisters and a host of other luminaries. The poems and stories in this visionary collection are by turns satiric, playful, utopian, psychedelic and gritty.” ― Elaine Equi, poet... Read more about: The Lady Anarchist Café »
“As publisher of Rimes of The Ancient Mariner Silver Tongued Devil Anthology: Celebrating five years of outstanding East Village poetry, fiction, memoirs, essays, storytelling, humor, and spoken word, Linda Kleinbub has not only been around downtown but has embraced the informal savvy-quirky spirit of generosity that is New York. Her first book of poems, Cover Charge, maps out dues paid under ‘purple galaxies’ or in wishful gardens where blessings, if blurry, are bountiful. In the poem, Visibility Unclear, ‘fissures of logic’ manage to ‘avoid tripping over cats’ and in the poem ‘Fire Burning,’ ‘Orion’s stars drift/ penniless across a/ quartz-colored sky.’ Brimming colors mix and match, jiggle vitality. Kleinbub, lyrical, sensual, sober, has arrived, and she’s brought with her Pink Trees Press.” ― Star Black, author of The Popular Vote... Read more about: Cover Charge »
