Futures and Fictions (Repeater)
Henriette Gunkel, Ayesha Hameed, Simon O’Sullivan (Eds.)

In what ways could we imagine a world different from the one in which we currently live?
This is the question addressed by the essays and conversations in Futures and Fictions, which explore possibilities for a different “political imaginary”;. With discussions around decolonization, new Afro- and other futurisms, post-capitalism, science fiction, and new kinds of social movements and the intersections of these with contemporary art practice and visual culture Futures and Fictions creates a space for alternate narratives and image-worlds that might be pitched against our neoliberal present.

Le Guin, Kemang Wa Lehulere, Robin Mackay, Louis Moreno, Sam Nightingale, Harold Offeh, Luciana Parisi, Theo Reeves-Evison and Judy Thorne.


Fiction as Method (Sternberg Press)
Jon K Shaw, Theo Reeves-Evison (Eds.)

In this anthology, a mixture of new and established names in the fields of contemporary art, media theory, philosophy, and speculative fiction explore the diverse ways fiction manifests, and provide insights into subjects ranging from the hive mind of the art collective 0rphan Drift to the protocols of online self-presentation. With an extended introduction by the editors, the book invites reflection on how fictions proliferate, take on flesh, and are carried by a wide variety of mediums—including, but not limited to, the written word.
Contributions from Justin Barton, Delphi Carstens & Mer Roberts, Tim Etchells, Matthew Fuller, David Garcia, Dora García, M. John Harrison, Simon O’Sullivan, Erica Scourti, Jon K Shaw and Theo Reeves-Evison.
