Druga edycja Warszawskiego Niezależnego Kiermaszu Książek odbędzie się w Klubie Pogłos przy Burakowskiej 12 w dniach 9-10 września 2017. Jeśli piszesz, drukujesz, organizujesz, tłumaczysz, prowadzisz bibliotekę albo coś badasz, tworzysz lub po prostu, tak jak my, lubisz książki, wpadnij wesprzeć nas w działaniach na rzecz niezależnych wydawnictw i książkowej samoorganizacji. Zapraszamy na dyskusje, wykłady, warsztaty i koncerty w trakcie WNKK!

W ubiegłym roku w Kiermaszu udział brały różnorodne grupy z kraju i zagranicy, międzynarodowe kolektywy, migranci i migrantki mieszkający w Warszawie oraz dziesiątki miłośniczek i miłośników książek w każdym wieku. Nie możemy się doczekać, aby tegorocznej jesieni znów się z wami spotkać!

Oprócz wydarzeń związanych z tematyką wydawniczą, kiermasz to także przestrzeń warsztatów oraz spotkań poruszających szerokie spektrum tematów – chcemy oddać głos inicjatywom oddolnym i osobom wykluczanym z dominującego dyskursu //z powodu rasy, pochodzenia, płci, orientacji seksualnej, wieku, ekonomicznych barier lub sprawności//. Pomyślmy wspólnie jak dzielić się naszymi doświadczeniami, aby uczyć się od siebie nawzajem, z szacunkiem dyskutować nad alternatywami oraz spojrzeć krytycznie na współczesną rzeczywistość.

Wciąż niezdecydowani_e? Spójrzcie na tegoroczny program (http://warsawbookfair.esy.es/) i krótką video zajawkę z podsumowaniem WNKK 2016 (vimeo.com/183179046).

Jeśli macie jakieś pytania, chcecie włączyć się w przygotowanie wydarzenia lub pomóc w promocji i organizacji przed i w trakcie samego kiermaszu (np. przy plakatowaniu, przygotowywaniu przestrzeni, opiece nad dziećmi, etc.) piszcie na adres warsawbookfair[at]riseup.net (w temacie wpiszcie: “Pomoc”)

The second edition of the Warsaw Independent Bookfair will take place on September 9 and 10, 2017.

The fair will be hosted by the Pogłos Club (Burakowska, 12) and accompanied by events including discussions, lectures, workshops and concerts. We warmly invite writers and translators, artists and researchers, publishers and librarians (and also those who do not fit into these categories) to join us in promoting and putting into practice the idea of independent publishing and self-organisation. While the focus on publishing remains, this year will also include a series of parallel events on a broader range of topics with the aim of giving voice to the grassroots initiatives and groups so often excluded from the dominant discourse //whether for reasons of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, income or ability.// Let’s think how to share our experiences openly and with respect, make criticisms sharper and clearer and learn to discuss alternatives together.

Last year, the Bookfair gathered dozens of participants from Poland and abroad, migrants living in Warsaw and international collectives. We — both adults and children — had lots of fun and cannot wait to see you this autumn!

Still not sure? Have a look at a short video of the event (vimeo.com/183179046), learn about the venue and see last year’s program (www.warsawbookfair.esy.es).

Datacide at Radical Bookfair, London 07-05-2016

Datacide will be at this years’ Radical Bookfair with a stall – and the brand new issue – datacide fifteen

RadicalBookfair2016_

Radical booksellers, publishers, artists and activists of all stripes are setting up in the Great Hall at Goldsmiths University to host the 4th London Radical Bookfair.

With over 130 exhibitors and 20 guest speakers, this will be a unique gathering of progressive readers, thinkers and doers, in a celebration of radical publishing and politics.

The free event is organised by the Alliance of Radical Booksellers (ARB), which formed in 2011 to raise awareness of the radical book trade. The fair provides an annual opportunity to bring Britain’s radical booksellers together to meet in person with publishers and the reading public.

And it’s also an opportunity for us to host award ceremonies for the ARB’s two annual book prizes — the Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing and the Little Rebels Children’s Book Award. Shortlisted authors from the two awards will give talks and participate in panel discussions throughout the day.

As in previous years, we’ll be showcasing the depth and breadth of radical publishing. While there are currently other book fairs dedicated to progressive titles, they tend to focus on tightly defined political traditions. The aim of the London Radical Bookfair is to be a broad church that brings together these traditions and make them accessible to a wider audience.

DATACIDE BOOKS FOR 2015

We’re very happy to announce the release of two books this month:

 

datacide book cover

EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS
a decade of noise & politics – datacide issues 1-10

A major project in the works for quite some time, this is a complete reprint of the issues 1-10 of datacide, which originally appeared from 1997-2008. Titled “EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS”, the 364 page volume collects unique material, most of which has been out of print for many years, charting a one-of-a-kind history of the counter-cultures associated with electronic music and free festivals.
“The free space of the party met the free space of the page and then you got a dynamism that encouraged expression and perversions and tangents because the covers held it together as a nomadic movement and you were convinced that music had catalysed it all and that music was somehow inherently political as it sidestepped rhetoric and dogma, and absented us from control addicts and the free space of the page was a kind of historic party, a kind of invisible college, a launching pad for driftage.” Flint Michigan

Almanac for Noise & Politics 2015

If you’re already familiar with datacide magazine and our related record label for extreme electronic music – Praxis – then you’re familiar with the efforts we’ve made over the last two decades to continually explore the intersections of radical politics and underground rave culture, experimental and extreme electronic music, moments of free spaces and momentary freak-outs and how these can be represented on the page and through the speakers. If not, this may be a good place to start.  Either way, the Almanac for noise & politics 2015 contains a selection of articles and excerpts from various issues of datacide, as well as a peek into the activities of the Praxis label and its offshoots. This first edition is meant to be a brief introduction to the wide range of topics covered in datacide.
Articles include: Post-Media Operators by Howard Slater/Eddie Miller/Flint Michigan, No Stars here (track -1) by TechNET, A Loop Da Loop Era – Towards an (Anti-)history of Rave by Neil Transpontine, Radical Intersections by Christoph Fringeli, Vinyl Meltdown by Alexis Wolton, Plague in this Town by Matthew Hyland, Just Say Non – Nazism, Narcissism and Boyd Rice by whomakesthenazis.com, Interview with Christoph Fringeli/Praxis Records from Objection to Procedure, a new short story by Dan Hekate, as well as a commented catalogue. This is interspersed by new visual work by Matthieu Bourel, Lynx, Sansculotte, Tóng Zhi, and Zombieflesheater!
Full colour cover and 104 inside pages in A6 format!

Distribution price (10+ copies): EUR 3,00
Wholesale price: EUR 4,00
