Datacide Eighteen release date

After a number of delays we’re happy to announce the release date of the print edition of Datacide Eighteen!

[Note that we are re-shuffling the dates a little bit, due to the fact that during the whole week of 23-29 of March there will be near-daily events in the new Praxis Store in Berlin. The release of datacide eighteen has been moved to take place there on March 28 or 29 (update in the next couple of days). The Vétomat event on March 15 will instead be a screening of the film War School.]

UPDATE: After announcing a March release date previously we had to postpone the release slightly when the final work on the issue ground to a halt due to the opening of the new Praxis shop in Berlin March 23. Finally, after a busy first week at the shop, work is resuming and the issue will be released shortly.

Sincere apologies to contributors, subscribers and readers. The wait will soon be over.

Datacide Eighteen will definitely come out this month (April 2019) and this remains a good time to SUBSCRIBE to receive the new issue hot off the press!

Strategies to resample the future #4
“As the future is not prescribed, and the succession of now and tomorrow is not monolithic or determined, our task consists in distinguishing the layers of futurability that lie in the texture of the present reality and in the present consciousness. (…)
The present depression (both psychological and economic) obscures the consciousness that no determinist projection of the future is true. We feel trapped in the tangle of techno-linguistic automatisms: finance, global competition, military escalation. But the body of the general intellect (the social and erotic bodies of a million cognitarians) is richer than the connective Brain. And the present reality is richer than the format imposed on it, as the multifold possibilities inscribed in the present have not been wholly cancelled, even if they may seem presently inert.”
Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi – Futurability – The Age of Impotence and the Horizon of Possibility (2017)
For this new episode of our journey through the intersections between possibilities and potency we will be supported by these explorers: [Read more →]
