  • Digital Unconscious: Nervous Systems and Uncanny Predictions!

    Price: $19.95

    Edited by Konrad Becker and Felix Stalder

    In hyper-normal hybrids the boundaries between man and machine have dissolved. Inside their nervous systems lies a strange but fascinating theme: the digital unconscious. Which forces act through algorithmic processes? What secrets are found in the shadowy realm of technology, welded to human nervous systems? How can the complexity of these relationships be described? What forms of access can cultural approaches offer? With S.M. Amadae, Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Cecilia Calheiros, Ewen Chardronnet, Critical Art Ensemble, Erik Davis, Graham Harwood, Eva Illiouz, Lydia H. Liu, Katja Mayer, El Iblis Shah, Felix Stalder, Michael Taussig, Peter Lamborn Wilson.

  • No More Mushrooms: Thoughts About Life Without Government

    Price: $11.95

    Kirkpatrick Sale

    “There is one overriding fact about government that condemns it to being forever wrong: it is a contrivance abhorrent to nature, including human nature, and cannot be formed in any such way to prevent it being so…. For the longest time that we have been humans, say for about a million-and-a-half years, we have lived without anything that could be remotely considered government…. There is the indictment. Government is a system of human organization that lessens individual liberty, nullifies family, and emaciates community, invariably working to enlarge its power at the expense of other organizations. It does not matter what kinds of people are running it, what various combinations of checks and balances may be tried, whatever benefits it may be attempting to achieve, it cannot escape its inherent nature…. I cannot imagine a world without problems and crises, without social and economic dislocations demanding some public response. I see no difficulty, however, in imagining a world where those are responded to at the immediate human level by those who perceive the immediate human effects and control their own immediate human destinies…....

  • No Mask, No Talk: Corona Poems, 2020-2021

    Price: $11.95

    Eve Packer

    “Eve Packer’s newest book of verse, no mask, no talk, is something different: a poetic journal that offers a clear picture of an epoch in our history that we all thought would be over by now. The immediacy of these meditations on self, loneliness, and mortality is given to us through keen observation, self-awareness born of experience, and more than a touch of wistfulness. You will find numerous moments of brilliance in these pages, but the overall cascading effect is what great poetry aspires to. Read this volume from beginning to end, you’ll recognize our shared humanity.” Danny Shot

  • The Hill

    Price: $24.95

    Gabriele Schafer

    In the middle of the night on Thanksgiving 1990, the same weekend that the film Dances with Wolves opened, life partners Gabriele and Nick erected a 25-foot-tall replica of a Lakota tipi in New York City’s then longest-existing shantytown, known as “The Hill,” located at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge at Canal and Chrystie Streets. The tipi was dedicated that December, on the centenary of the Wounded Knee Massacre, in remembrance of the lives lost in 1890, and in recognition of the sovereignty and dignity of the most disenfranchised and forgotten members of our society a century later. Gabriele and Nick thought that if the tipi stood for even one day it would be a success, drawing the eye of over 80,000 motorists that cross the bridge per day, compelling them to engage directly with how our society treats its most down and out. But the powers that be let it stand, and G &...

  • Dreams of Anarchy and the Anarchy of Dreams: Adventures at the Crossroads of Anarchy and Surrealism

    Price: $24.95

    Ron Sakolsky

    The wild current of anarchy runs deeply throughout the oneiric river of surrealism. Here then is a book of dreams set in motion by the myriad historical and contemporary interactions between surrealism and one of its most marvelous accomplices: anarchism. A vast and comprehensive critical history, carefully documenting the fleeting and sometimes lengthy and troubled affiliations of scores of surrealist legends in France, Spain, North America, and elsewhere, not only with anarchism but also Trotskyism, Stalinism, council communism, anti-fascism, and indigenous cultures. Ron Sakolsky’s magnum opus.
