With + Stand 3: the red issue

"Critique does not simply liquidate the system." -Adorno, Negative Dialectics

With + Stand seeks submissions for its third iteration, the red issue. This issue will take shape over the next month and will be available at the With + Stand edition of the Canessa Gallery Reading Series in San Francisco on March 14th 2009. Please send submissions as a .doc to withplusstand [at] gmail [dot] com by February 28th.

Docs should consist of a single face of a single 8.5 x 11" page, formatted to your liking, and responding to the following:

Recent crises in global capitalism have functioned, as crises often do, to reveal the historical contours of the present, providing new opportunities to read history against the grain and to unsettle established assumptions. This call for [poems/essays/manifestos] proposes that as our economies enter a period of potentially profound structural transformation, it is all the more necessary to examine the relationship between the economic mode of production and cultural and social forms in the period after WWII.
