2. Strategic Reality Dictionary book launch
September 29th, 2009 7 pm
Eyebeam (http://www.eyebeam.org)

Join us for the release of Konrad Becker’s Strategic Reality  
Dictionary. Becker will present a compelling slideshow that seeks to  
define the terms by which hacktivists and tactical media practitioners  
like Critical Art Ensemble and the Yes Men infiltrate and subvert the  
global information system.

“Strategic Reality Dictionary offers seventy-two keys to the  
construction, imposition and maintenance of contemporary systems of  
inclusion and exclusion, which only function for two principle  
reasons: because of stealth, and because they are able to engineer our  
own unconscious beliefs.” – Brian Holmes

A reception follows. Event co-produced by Autonomedia.

Konrad Becker is an author, artist and producer in the field of  
culture and information technology. Director and co-founder of the  
Institute for New Culture Technologies/t0, and of Public Netbase from  
1994 to 2006, he initiated World-Information.Org, a cultural  
intelligence agency. Publications include: Strategic Reality  
Dictionary (2009) and Tactical Reality Dictionary (2002).


3. Between Dog & Wolf to be reissued
Those who have been wanting to get their hands on a copy of David Levi  
Strauss’ classic exploration of the relation between art, politics,  
and aesthetics will be delighted to know that a new printing of the  
book will be available in the next few weeks. In this collection of  
essays, David Levi Strauss addresses the always conflicted relation  
between aesthetics and politics by concentrating on specific instances  
– from allopathic art to Desert Storm propaganda, from Columbus’s  
legacy to Robert Smithson’s prophesies, and from new art in post- 
Soviet Russia to public art in the United States – and by focusing on  
the work of artists as various as Grunewald, Jean Genet, Cindy  
Sherman, Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol, Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie  
Mizonville, Carolee Schneemann, Andrei Monastyrsky, and Daniel Joseph  

4. Upcoming Bookfairs & Events
