Under the Radar: Underground Zines and Self-Publications 1965–1975

The mid-1960s witnessed a boom in underground and self-published works in West Germany. Hectographs, mimeographs and offset printing not only allowed for the production of small, low-cost print runs, but also promoted a unique aesthetic. Using wild mock-ups, these messianic amateurs combined typescript aesthetics, handwriting, scribbled drawings, assemblages of collaged visuals, porn photos, snapshots and comic strips, forging a new, wildly free, sensibility in the process. This book is the first to present the underground and self-published works that came out of West Germany in such depth, while also showing the international context in which they emerged – not as an anecdotal history but as an attempt to tap into the aesthetic cosmos of the Do-It-Yourself rebellion. Insomuch, Under the Radar also challenges us to take a new look at the current boom in independent publishing, the risograph aesthetic and more.

An incredible collection and valuable volume for anyone interested in underground publishing history!

Sydney Underground Movies
Ubu Films 1965-1970


This book is a chronicle of the Ubu Films group. Formed by Albie Thoms, David Perry, Aggy Read and John Clark in Sydney 1965, it was Australia’s first group devoted to making, exhibiting and distributing experimental films. Throughout the 1965-1970 period, Ubu produced Australia’s first lightshows, published this country’s first underground newspaper (Ubunews), and persistently advocated for the reform of censorship laws and the need for government support for the arts.
Flamboyant, controversial and resolutely independent, Ubu Films instigated an extensive network of Australia’s underground activity at aa time when Australia’s cultural and political landscape was in transition. For only a brief period, Ubu established a viable proposition that film, performance, painting and political action could coalesce into a vibrant interactive community. What follows is the story of its rise and fall.

Reproducing Ubu ephemera (posters, programmes, handbills, Ubunews articles and newspaper pages), countless newspaper and magazine articles, reviews and cartoons advocating and denouncing the many activities (film, performance, music, publishing, etc.) of Ubu, legal documents, behind the scenes photography, film-stills, biographies, film lists and intimate reflections – this amazing, visually-dense and informative chronological volume that is essential reading for anyone interested in Australia’s history of underground film, but also for independent film-making in general.

Edited by Peter Mudie.

Hearings: A Reader
Contour Biennale 8

Edited by Natasha Ginwala

The Contour Biennale 8, “Polyphonic Worlds: Justice as Medium,” curated by Natasha Ginwala, brings together twenty-five international and local artists and art collectives working in lens-based media, sound, performance, drawing, and installation, to address questions related to the nation-state system and the realm of justice today. Taking place in Mechelen, Belgium, “Polyphonic Worlds” embraces the communal spirit of the biennale by including the many-sided voices that assemble in collective formations as well as discrete, individual creative positions.

This reader proposes a series of beginnings—it is a polyphonic approach that borrows from juridical and musical spheres. Launched as the online journal of the biennial, Hearings pairs texts or image-based contributions, allowing for a sense of tension and affinity to develop in the feedback loop of the two voices. Relationships around the artwork as site of evidence and testimony are thus reoriented. The multidimensional readings are not restricted to the active apparatus of law and discipline, but instead seek to unravel the synchronies of our times—the mesh of injustice in our midst.

Featuring texts and illustrated contributions by Agency, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Eric Baudelaire, Rossella Biscotti, Hunter Braithwaite and Trevor Paglen, Filipa César, Cooking Sections, Council, T. J. Demos, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Pedro Gómez-Egaña, Rana Hamadeh, Louis Henderson, Adelita Husni-Bey, Ho Tzu Nyen, inhabitants, Arvo Leo, Sven Lütticken, Basir Mahmood, Samuel Mareel, Dirk de Meyer, Otobong Nkanga, Pallavi Paul and Anish Ahluwalia, Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Judy Radul, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam, Madonna Staunton, Ana Torfs, Trinh Thi Nguyen, Susanne M. Winterling and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and Ghassan Zaqtan.

Copublished with Contour Biennale on the occasion of Contour Biennale 8: “Polyphonic Worlds: Justice as Medium” (March 11–May 21, 2017).
