Material Conjectures with Gary Woodley

Emily Motto

L(a)ying Down in the Banlieue

Despite commonalities between feminist poetry and Marxist feminism, they have not often crossed paths.

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?
