An intimate gathering with Alan Smart from Other Forms, Matt Plezier – Mono Rhetorik, Robert Hamelijnck and Nienke Terpsma from Fucking Good Art – who also interviewed Alan for WORM Radio. Friends and PrintRoom team members and some passers by joined us – we all listened to the interview.
The fourth issue of Counter-Signals invokes, in black and bright red, texts and images to query the claims and break the aesthetic chains of “visual identity,” within and against late capitalism. What is an identity and what can we do about it? Proletarian negativity, the IBM design manual, chop suey cheap wasp workers, rowdy crinolines, tranquilizing camouflage, misprint capital, José Carlos Mariátegui, queers at war, indonesian punks on hope, and much much more, or less.
Counter-Signals #4 includes contributions from Nathan Brown, Ulrike Jordan, Gerd Conradt, Lisa Vinebaum, Samo Tomšič, Bea Walker, Verónica Casado Hernández, Nat Pyper, Werker Collective, Evan Fusco, Michalis Pichler, Andrea Garcia Flores, Angel Gonzalez, Chris Lee, Mahmoud Keshavarz, Hannah Bruckmüller and Michal B. Ron, Jorge Cano, Anuar Portugal, Carlos Quiroz, Erin Madarieta, Alex Lahr, Sean Martin-Iverson, and Jacob Lindgren.
