Please join us on Tuesday 21 November, 6-8pm for a double launch with Zer0 Utopia and Repeater Books.
We celebrate the launch of We Hear Only Ourselves. Utopia, Memory, and Resistance by Bill Cashmore and Anti-Oculus: A Philosophy of Escape by Acid Horizon.
We Hear Only Ourselves is a study of utopia and its contradictions. If a future beyond capitalism cannot be imagined, what is the place of utopia today? The answer, Cashmore argues, lies beyond either idle speculation or merely hopeful optimism. We Hear Only Ourselves seeks a concept of utopia which is strengthened, not undermined, by its contradictions. From the dialectics of the Frankfurt School to the energetics of resistance in the writings of the Black Panthers, this book draws on a wide range of thought to offer a new concept of utopia, one adequate for our present moment.
Anti-Oculus is a work of conceptual espionage: an assemblage of polemical tracts complete with a gallery of graphic illustrations inspired by postmodern and pulp classics from Anti-Oedipus to Ways of Seeing.
