Who’s Laughing Now?: Feminist Tactics in Social Media (The MIT Press) by Jenny Sunden, Susanna Paasonen
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.3 MB
Overview: Exploring feminist social media tactics that use humor and laughter as a form of resistance to misogyny, rewiring feelings of shame into shamelessness.

Online sexism, hate, and harassment aim to silence women through shaming and fear. In Who’s Laughing Now? Jenny Sundén and Susanna Paasonen examine a somewhat counterintuitive form of resistance: humor. Sundén and Paasonen argue that feminist social media tactics that use humor, laughter, and a sense of the absurd to answer name-calling, offensive language, and unsolicited dick pics can reroute and rewire shame into a self-assured shamelessness.

Download Ghostways by Robert Macfarlane (.ePUB)

Ghostways: Two Journeys in Unquiet Places by Robert Macfarlane, Stanley Donwood, Dan Richards
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 31.1 MB
Overview: A hauntingly beautiful diptych of works inspired by Robert Macfarlane’s travels with celebrated collaborators to two eerie corners of England.

In Holloway, “a perfect miniature prose-poem” (William Dalrymple), Macfarlane, artist Stanley Donwood, and writer Dan Richards travel to Dorset, near the south coast of England, to explore a famed “hollowed way”―a path used by walkers and riders for so many centuries that it has become worn far down into the soft golden bedrock of the region.

In Ness, “a triumphant libretto of mythic modernism for our poisoned age” (Max Porter), Macfarlane and Donwood create a modern myth about Orford Ness, the ten-mile-long shingle spit that lies off the coast of East Anglia, which the British government used for decades to conduct secret weapons tests.

Download Art and Postcapitalism by Dave Beech (.ePUB)+

Art and Postcapitalism: Aesthetic Labour, Automation and Value Production by Dave Beech
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF reader, 1.5 MB
Overview: Artistic labour was exemplary for Utopian Socialist theories of ‘attractive labour’, and Marxist theories of ‘nonalienated labour’, but the rise of the anti-work movement and current theories of ‘fully automated luxury communism’ have seen art topple from its privileged place within the left’s political imaginary as the artist has been reconceived as a prototype of the precarious 24/7 worker. Art and Postcapitalism argues that art remains essential for thinking about the intersection of labour, capitalism and postcapitalism not insofar as it merges work and pleasure but as an example of noncapitalist production.

Reassessing the contemporary politics of work by revisiting debates about art, technology and in the nineteenth and twentieth century, Dave Beech challenges the aesthetics of labour in John Ruskin, William Morris and Oscar Wilde with a value theory of the supersession of capitalism that sheds light on the anti-work theory by Silvia Federici, Andre Gorz, Kathi Weeks and Maurizio Lazzarato, as well as the technological Cockayne of Srnicek and Williams and Paul Mason. Formulating a critique of contemporary postcapitalism, and developing a new understanding of art and labour within the political project of the supersession of value production, this book is essential for activists, scholars and anyone interested in the real and imagined escape routes from capitalism.

Download Yearbook of Futurism Studies 2018 by Günter (Gunter) Berghaus (.ePUB)

International Yearbook of Futurism Studies 2018 edited by Günter (Gunter) Berghaus, Domenico Pietropaolo, Beatrice Sica
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 45.7 MB
Overview: The eighth volume of the International Yearbook of Futurism Studies is again an open issue and presents in its first section new research into the international impact of Futurism on artists and artistic movements in France, GreatBritain, Hungary and Sweden.

This is followed by a study that investigates a variety of Futurist inspired developments in architecture, and an essay that demonstrates that the Futurist heritage was far from forgotten after the Second World War. These papers show how a wealth of connections linked Futurism with Archigram, Metabolism, Archizoom and Deconstructivism, as well as the Nuclear Art movement, Spatialism, Environmental Art, Neon Art, Kinetic Art and many other trends of the 1960s and 70s.

The second section focuses on Futurism and Science and contains a number of papers that were first presented atthe fifth bi-annual conference of the European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies (EAM), held on 1-3 June 2016 in Rennes. They investigate the impact of science on Futurist aesthetics and the Futurist quest for a new perception and rational understanding of the world, as well as the movement’s connection with the esoteric domain, especially in the field of theosophy, the Hermetic tradition, Gnostic mysticism and a whole phalanx of Spiritualist beliefs.

Download Newsgames: Journalism at Play by Ian Bogost (.ePUB)

Newsgames: Journalism at Play by Ian Bogost, Simon Ferrari, Bobby Schweizer
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 15. MB
Overview: Journalism has embraced digital media in its struggle to survive. But most online journalism just translates existing practices to the Web: stories are written and edited as they are for print; video and audio features are produced as they would be for television and radio. The authors of Newsgames propose a new way of doing good journalism: videogames. Videogames are native to computers rather than a digitized form of prior media. Games simulate how things work by constructing interactive models; journalism as game involves more than just revisiting old forms of news production. Wired magazine’s game Cutthroat Capitalism, for example, explains the economics of Somali piracy by putting the player in command of a pirate ship, offering choices for hostage negotiation strategies. Videogames do not offer a panacea for the ills of contemporary news organizations. But if the industry embraces them as a viable method of doing journalism.
