Anguish Language approaches
language as a core aspect of the
present social crisis. The
project engages in solidarity
with forms of self-publishing,
poetry, criticism, experimental
writing and declamation that
have arisen in the wake of the
2007-8 financial crisis,
considering language among

struggles responding to its

Politics of Memory
and Archive

Edited by Marco Scotini
and Elisabetta Galasso
This anthology investigates the
document as such, as an
objective trace left by events, as
material proof or the creation
of reality – the strategies with
which they transform a state of
memory into state memory,
those by means of which a
historical removal is enacted,
those, ultimately, in which
there is an attempt to challenge
permanent or temporary
amnesia, opening up to the

The Psychopathologies
of Cognitive Capitalism:
Part Three.

Edited by
Warren Neidich

This volume is part of a series
of books that attempts to
broaden the definition
of cognitive capitalism in terms
of the scope of its material
relations especially as it relates
to the conditions of mind and
brain in our new world of
advanced telecommunication,
data mining and social
relations. It is our hope to first
improve awareness of its most
repressive characteristics and
secondly to produce an arsenal
of discursive practices with
which to combat it.

What difference does it make if a newspaper reports on a
worker protest as if it were a theater piece? Why does an
argument in the neighbors’ apartment sound like a radio
play? When was the term Lebensraum decolonized? How
can Little Red Riding Hood get hold of the copyright for
her own character? Who dresses up as whom in order to
belong to what group? What happens when not much is
happening, but lots of airtime has been scheduled for
news broadcasts?
At a radio station called The Listener’s Voice, freedom of
speech is supposed to be guaranteed by a computerized
moderator taking listeners’ calls. Yet, the moderator was
not only programmed for an unplanned architecture of
discourse that sprawls into environments of potential
violence, ambiguous sexuality, and rowdy beauty, but also
to make identifying data anonymous. Double-sided,
invisible, and acoustic masks are at work. Cyber-radio
comes into conflict with human memory.

Lieux de Mémoire and Desire presents five cinematic
works of Maya Schweizer and examines how the artist
approaches the relation of montage editing techniques
with the concept of film and memorial and film as
memorial — a relation which traces back to the very
beginnings of montage as it does to research findings
by French historian Pierre Nora. Recurring moments
in Schweizer’s multiform art practice revolve around
the examination of subtly treated processes of memory
regarding historic-political events in public space. In
the places, structures and situations she investigates,
historical threads intersect.

Conversation between
Judith Raum and
Sabeth Buchmann
eser is a comprehensive publication on Judith Raum’s
works, installations and lecture performance texts from
2011 to 2014. It is also a theoretical reader and material
collection on the semi-colonial advance of German
entrepreneurs and bankers into the Ottoman Empire
before World War I in connection with the construction
of the Anatolian Railway. In this frame, the logics of
capitalism and geopolitical interests connected the
engineers’ tasks with less obvious efforts: to get a hold of
Anatolian archaeology, agriculture and the working
conditions in the country.
