Exit Strategies: Danny Hayward’s Pragmatic Sanction

Coordinated possibility

'What if our possibility is grounded in the uncoordinated?', asks Pragmatic Sanction, Danny Hayward's ambitious long poem. Among other things it undertakes a scarifying assault on the kind of 'thinking' constituted and compelled by the Government's 'points based' Work Capability Assessment system. Ed Luker works through and illuminates the dizzying deadlocks of a contemporary communist poetry that is neither reconciled nor resolved, but inexhaustibly compelling

 

In Times of Political Ruin

Massive boulders, strong mass

Some reflections on post-referendum politics from H. Gracchus

In these great times, which I have known since they were small; which shall become so again, if they are given time enough for it. – Karl Kraus

Notes from Non-Existence

Heinrich Haine takes leave of Common Sense with the perverse claim that some of the working class live in Islington and not all are natural anglo-English born. At least they weren't allowed to vote, then. But why does Mute give a platform to Cosmopolitan Scum?

Call for Issue 2. Corrupting Desires! Technique, Performance and Control

Email to: cesura.acceso@gmail.com

We are currently accepting submissions for Issue 2 of Cesura//Acceso, to be published in June 2016.

Our central theme will be: Corrupting Desires! Technique, Performance and Control.

Art’s Economic Exceptionalism

Whilst left critiques habitually relate art to capitalist commodification, few do this on strictly economic grounds, let alone cogently. Josefine Wikström argues that finally we do have a book that fulfills exactly this task

 

INSIDE OUT

Inside Out

Marx famously described capitalism as mad and inverted. Daniel Spaulding re-examines speculative realism through an Adornian prism to disclose a thought of ‘the great outdoors’ beyond capital that is very much immanent to a world not only upside down but increasingly inside out

 

Nervous Costume

Madame Tlank digresses from and back to Anne Boyer’s Garments Against Women, which is many things. A memoir written by someone without a history. A garment made for no-body. A reproduction fin in a great fleet of sharks
